Art: Carny Art by Artist Stephanie Dyke
I love the nostalgia and fake glitz of carnivals and sideshows but I wanted to create something that wasn't so obvious. This piece came together with a lot of found objects and images. The hand quilting is pretty uncomplicated in order to let the chaos of the quilt shine. The found objects include Audobon prints, flash cards, measuring tape fragments, silk flower petals, plastic beads, vintage trims and, of course my signature tacky spangles. The key images and the main text are rubber stamped on thin vinyl and stitched onto the body of the quilt.
