The book does not detail the dimensions of her busy life which includes teaching classes around the world, speaking engagements, leading two art tours a year to international destinations, nurturing her home, family, and farm, and designing unique fabrics. Here is a person who lives her art.
A highly recommended book which will change your idea of the word "quilt.".
She shares her thoughts,struggles,ideas,creative process, influences,living and working environments and her powerful abstract art quilts.
The many four page fold outs allow the viewer to see in large scale her art quilts and design details and notes from her Sketchbooks, not normally done by many artists of her renown.
The full color image quality and the comprehensive text allow the reader to feel as if they are sitting in her studio having a discussion with Nancy.
A visual feast of powerful colors and designs as well as detailed text on her work and her processes makes this book a valuable resource for artists in all media, art collectors, gallery owners and museum and college libraries.
Nancy Crow's devotion to her art is plainly seen in this book. As an artist/teacher she has provided us with a book that could easily be regarded as a textbook or reference source for anyone with artistic and aesthetic aspirations. She gives us the opportunity to read her personal art diary notes; she shares thoughts on experiences that have had lasting influences on her work, --and ahe does so with no excuses.
The author gives continous credit to persons, places and experiences that have contributed to her development as a world-known quilt artist.
And, the book is beautiful evidence of Ms. Crow's attention to detail. It is stunningly illustrated with top-quality photos in a layout that is both inviting and purpose-oriented.
