Christine Meuris

Intro

The subject of my work is translating traditional home-based arts executed in fabric and fiber into works made on and of paper. In this way I distill and reinterpret the foundational aspects of pattern, color, geometry and symmetry.

This work is my way of connecting ideas of art and craft, of pointing out the false barrier erected between – a barrier often based on class and gender.

As quilters and needle artists have done before me, I assemble my work from simple units such as dots and lines or actual paper shapes stitched together. I consider my works to be constructions and the repetitious work and precision required to make them to be the joy.
