Susan Carlson:  Specimens

 “With these quilts I hope to help the viewer see all creatures–great and small–with fresh eyes.  In some ways, my images are simple.  The compositions are basic, simple profiles displaying as much of the animal as possible, often mimicking the posed figures of specimens in museum cases.  In other ways my images are complex.  Seen up close, the sheer number of pieces of fabric used makes for a density of color and texture.”
