Afterimage - Quilt of the Week

"After Image," 13" x 10", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2020

I thought this piece looked like a sun but it was obviously the wrong colors so then I thought it looked like the afterimage of a sun, what you see when you close your eyes after you look at the sun.

Afterimage is defined "a visual sensation occurring after stimulation by its external cause has ceased." Sometimes I feel that all art is an afterimage, it's a visual sensation that is left after the process of creating art has ceased.

The green fabric at the top is a sheer fabric so you can see part of the image from the fabric behind it, also kind of an afterimage.

Because this is the Quilt of the Week, it is 10% off the original price of $90 through 11/7/21 if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.
