City grid IV

by Valerie Goodwin
Abstract
2007



The language of lines, shapes and patterns fascinates her. She creates fiber art inspired by realistic and abstract imagery of maps. When she began to make art quilts, she was intrigued by aerial views of places. In one of her works titled City Grid IV, she incorporated her own admiration for architecture to create a cartography of an imaginary abstract city.









Valerie Goodwin is fascinated by the languages of lines, shapes and pattern. She is drawn to what she pereives to be the symbols and language found in maps and architectural drawings. Many works of art such as the paintings of Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock and Robert Motherwell inspire her.
