Contemporary Quilt Journal 2013 December

Plaque

My theme for this year is architecture and to narrow it down: Friedrich Hundertwasser, architect, painter and environmentalist. His use of bright colours and fluid lines have attracted me for a long time, straight lines are "the tool of the devil". His work will keep me inspired for a long time.

Plaque

The last one in the Hundertwasser series.

This is the plaque on the outside of the Art Museum in Vienna. Two buildings from the 19th century were refurbished during 1989-91 according to a design by Hundertwasserand conjoined into 1 building, exhibiting work by Hundertwasser and many international artists.

The letters and the stone wall are bonded and stitched by machine onto the dark grey background.
