I chose this piece because it is mounted on stretcher bars, and ineligible for many shows because it is mounted. It is made of black cotton. layers of green and brown netting, and 434 adhesive bandages, 1 corn pad, gauze, adhesive tape, spanish moss, and acrylic paint. It has 3 layers held together by stitching, and meets the definition of a quilt. Yes, it's an art conservationist's worst nightmare. But at the rate things are going here in Louisiana, it may last longer than the wetlands. This piece was originally made for a show at the Bluebonnet swamp Nature Center in Baton Rouge entitled Save Our Swamps.
