The art quilts of Kathleen Probst

Lava, Kathleen Probst, 2015
In my exploration of the use of organic shapes in minimalist composition, I stumbled upon the stunning work of Kathleen Probst, an American textile artist whose solo show opens this month at the Visions Art Museum in San Diego, CA.

Probst achieves an effect of transparency with her careful choice of colours, using hand-dyed cloth. Her quilting adds a subtle dimension and texture to her pebble-like shapes. She works quite large, with dimensions ranging between 30" and 60".

If you visit her website, you can see the evolution of Probst's work as she reduces her imagery to its essence.

I'm glad that you discovered Kathleen's work. Your pebble shapes in the last post brought her work to mind.

I can imagine how great these pieces would look in a spare, modern setting.
