Marriage of blue and orange

Marriage of Blue and Orange

Piece description from the artist

Blue and orange are opposites on the color wheel. This means that they can either enhance each other's brilliance when paired side by side, or dull down even to the point of gray when they are mixed. Marriage can be either/or or both depending on how they are put together.

About Judith Larzelere

Westerly, RI
Judith began to sew by embroidering a sampler at the age of seven. Sewing and thinking about fabric have always been pleasurable to her, and it seemed very natural to turn to this skill for a career. She was trained as a painter at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. where she learned to develop a love of color. Since 1978 she has been making art quilts full-time. Judith’s images are abstract and non-geometric and do not rely on a block/grid structure. She seeks to recreate the apparent artlessness of nature’s organic forms. She is fascinated by the flicker of light on moving water, the shimmer of the Northern Lights, the drift of clouds, and the patterns of pebbles washed up on a beach. Her earlier quilts are expressive; her latest works are minimal by intent. Judith is exploring the same problems and expressing the same inspirations as a painter using oils or acrylics. Instead, Judith choose colored cloth as a medium because she likes the collage aspect of designing with fabric; “I like selecting from available color rather than mixing paints, and I love the tactile pleasure of handling cloth.” age of seven.
