Name of the exercise: Expressionism

What Doro says about this exercise:

This is the miniature quilt "Expressionism meets 21st century". First of all, for me expressionism is mostly too loud, too striking and sometimes also too destructive. Although there are some really beautiful expressionist pieces, but anyway, the artists were influenced by WWI. What I found very interesting though is that our era after roughly 100 years is quite comparable. While the artists critizised the bourgoisie, I interpret the current slogans to slow down, to be aware, to live in a sustainable way etc. a similar reaction to this never ending more, moremore, more sucessful, more beautiful, richer, bigger etc.

Although the expressionism is not my very favourite cup of tea, I integrated it in my quilt. I painted the picture only using primary colours and white and black on the fabric and then quilted the piece. In order to create a reference to the 21st century, I included the current slogans mentioned previously.
