Tonye Belinda Phillips and her good friend, Kathy Deggendorfer, are excited to explore the natural landscape and the textures and fibers that can be used to create fields of flowers, a multitude of pine cones, and the incredible patterning that is everywhere you look.
This body of work focuses on elements rather than larger landscapes. The pine cones in Kathy’s Quilt Show poster image became a point on which to focus. Changing the backgrounds and color gave Kathy a way to depict the texture of this spiny and very unflat object. Tonye has been intrigued by the cones that appear on the vast variety of trees in our area. Each one is a unique little study of texture and color. Working with fabric and decorative threads is a passion of hers, and these lend themselves to all sorts of possibilities when it comes to touch and feel and surface design.
Both artists find that working in the abstract with a common theme is very challenging and exciting. It enables them to see things they might not have noticed before.
