Artist-quilter Carole Pollard says, “Ideas excite me. Beauty inspires me.
I wanted to be an artist from childhood, but made my living teaching English. I retired to get serious about making art, and I chose designing and making art quilts to express that intention.
Several quilts have been inspired by literature. Many have deeply personal meaning, a psychological self-portrait.
Archetypes* are all contained and interlinked within me and work together in dynamic and sometimes startling or even disturbing ways.”
Join us on Monday evening, September 25th at the AI Root Community Room, as Carole shows the process of how--and why--she puts together these magnificent pieces of cloth and thought.
*Archetypes are universal, inborn models of people, behaviors, and personalities that play a role in influencing human behavior. Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung's theory suggested that these archetypes were archaic forms of innate human knowledge passed down from our ancestors.
In Jungian psychology, these archetypes represent universal patterns and images that are part of the collective unconscious. Jung believed that we inherit these archetypes much in the way we inherit instinctive patterns of behavior.
