A wonderfully decorative depiction of a swordfish, covered in blue and white circles and set against a seaweed-like background. The image has both a classic nautical feel and a fresh, chic design.
This is a fine print of the original felted wool work. It is bordered with one inch of white paper and set in a white wood frame.
The textile artist Maryanne Quinn puts a modern spin on American folk art with her felted wool designs. Though her pieces often have a childlike spirit, Quinn draws on bold graphics and ironic references that make them sophisticated works of art. In her designs, one can see influences of a lifetime of salty summers, Quinn’s early botanical study in watercolors, and the precise arrangements she mastered as a graphic designer. Quinn lives with her three children in Boulder, CO, and spends summers by the beach on Long Island, where she grew up.
