Patchwork Heart #11

By Lucy Boland

The Patchwork Hearts are cut-up paintings given new life through connection, love and generational wisdom. Craving a new layer to my process, I worked off and on through this series with my grandmother who is also a life long maker and artist. Through our time together, I was able to share the most vulnerable stages of my process and ask for help. I picked up far more than simple seamstress skills as I learned a much deeper family history of women creators who have used their work as a model of care taking and love giving and, ultimately self healing. I unknowingly left my comfort zone and completely immersed myself in hers, intertwining her creativity through quilting and sewing with my love for painting and exploration.
