COLOR LABYRINTH

BY KATIE PASQUINI MASOPUST

about the artist

For nearly 30 years, Katie Pasquini Masopust has produced high-quality contemporary art quilts that have been coveted and collected by a broad range of admirers. From her early beginnings as a painter dabbling in traditional quiltmaking, her work has evolved from structured Mandalas and mind-blowing dimensional pieces to very painterly landscapes and abstracts executed with the finest fabrics and most creative stitching techniques. 

 

AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL

about the collection

Aboriginal Art is one of the more ancient traditional arts in the world, going back approximately 50,000 years. In early days, Aboriginals did cave painting, rock painting, and sand or ground painting. The newer generations use acrylic paints on canvas to portray their Dreamtime. These Aboriginal artworks are sought after not only in Australia but worldwide. M&S Textiles works with these creative artists in making their stories heard.

AFRICAN WAX

FABRICS

about the collection

African wax prints were influenced by a technique called Dutch wax, a type of resin printed fabric from the Netherlands. Although unpopular in some countries because the resin tends to crack, Dutch wax prints became popular in Africa during the second half of the 19th century. Today, many fabrics are still made using the same Dutch wax style across Africa, along with other resist dyeing techniques .
