Cécile Trentini

Daily Inspiration

Show: November 12 – December 28

Opening: November 11 from 6 to 7:30 pm

Cecile Trentini is a Swiss quilt artist whose career began as a painter and sculptor.  She considers curiosity as the main driving force in her work.  Her materials are often unconventional--such as cotton makeup pads, chocolate wrappers--joined with a unique aesthetic style.

 

I find that the juxtaposition of contemporary, figurative subjects

paired with a very traditional form of quilting -- after all, there is

nothing more basic than sewing squares of commercially

available material together and then quilting them-- leads to

interesting and beautiful images.
