Quilted linen and canvas, pine and brass brad frame | 2020
This series of textile works, the country i come from, uses various types of fabric to create flattened, minimalist landscapes, inspired by Caflisch’s upbringing in the midwest. The sewn seam between the bold colors creates a horizon line, simplifying the viewer’s perspective into distinct planes. The works also explore color theory and abstraction, inviting the viewer to fill in the blanks about the vista upon which they gaze.
A note from the artist: This specific work has a red stitching at the bottom between the green textile and the raw canvas. This is an intentional characteristic of the work, and appears more defined up close.
