Lise Belanger: Behind the Seams

Lise Belanger: Behind the Seams

Friday, April 19, 2019 - to

The National Quilt Museum

A self-taught quilter, Lise Belanger is an accomplished textile artist right down to her fingertips, and the winner of international quilt contests. Drawing inspiration from the beauty of nature, Lise trusts the “here and now” and gets carried away without ever stopping to question her artistic instinct. She likes to picture her subjects close up, livening up every corner of the quilt, her hands dictated by sparks of creativity. Colours remain at the very centre of her artwork; colours she harmonizes meticulously, in minute detail. For Lise, precision is the key; a quilt must be as beautiful from afar as up close, must offer a satisfying contemplative experience from all angles. When she sews a new quilt for a contest, she always complies with finishing criteria. But with her everyday creations, which attract a much broader public, she lets her imagination take over to challenge and overstep the rules. She adds her unique unconventional finishing touch, the reflection of her very own “frame” of thought. Go behind the seams and watch her artwork suddenly come to life through the interplay of fabric, texture and thread, right before your eyes.
