Lately I’ve been researching textiles as historical sources for women’s history. In this process, I came across the amazing quilts of mathematician Chawne Kimber.
“Chawne Kimber is making some of the most powerful artworks today about race, language, women’s rights, and police brutality—all with a needle and thread,” Maria Hlohowskyj (from womenarts.org). That sentence was written three years ago and yet feels like it was written yesterday.
I can’t think of a better quilt to illustrate these heartbreaking times. Follow her work on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/cauchycomplete/albums and Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cauchycomplete.
