Quilting: A Journey
Theresa Harrison | Main Gallery

“Fluidity” is a word Theresa Harrison uses to describe the journey or process of a quilt, having at least thirteen steps. She also uses it to describe the way a viewer’s eye flows across the surface of her designs; thinking as a painter, she uses poetry as a metaphor to describe her creative process.

Fluidity also describes the movement of her life, from gardening (cultivating natural plant dyes for fabric creations), to teaching in the sciences (also certified ESOL), to weaving (five looms are set up in her living room, along with six spinning wheels), to cooking, to family (a mom and grandmother), and especially quiltmaking. For textiles present a difficult aesthetic challenge, and only from the vantage point of a versatile and confident artist can the medium be “transformed into works of beauty or emotional power.”
