A superb colorist, Eleanor McCain M.D. creates textile art from hand dyed cotton fabric. Her meticulous geometric designs, reminiscent of colorfield paintings and inspired by the works of Sol Lewitt, are presented in quilt form, a traditional art form intertwined with the history of the home and family.

Statement

“Quilting is grounded in American history, family, community and common experience.  Art quilts are a living document of cultural history expressing artistic, emotional and spiritual values, particularly those of women.  I use quilts to transpose function and symbol, art and craft, and to express ideals about creativity and community.”
