The Source for Contemporary Art Quilts, Exhibitions & Appraisals


Joy Saville explains that quilts like Regeneration "express the feelings of connection, interaction, and recognition that happen in the moments when time stands still, moments that often occur when I am focused on my work; I am centered, but very much aware, as if in meditation. The energy of this stillness encircles me. It is this contradiction between the quietness of the moment and my awareness of the change implied by the existence of the moment that fuels the creation of the work. This quilt, Waters of Grace, Sacred Space, and Quickening were all done after I finally got back to my studio after my husband's death in October 2006. The focus of my work has been more than a gift. ”
