Grove by Casey York, 2013

Grove evokes summer's late afternoon light as it slants through a stand of trees. The hot, sour colors of the trunks combined with the long diagonals of the shadows epitomize this time of day. The placement of vertical lines of quilting in the tree trunks accentuates the sense of three-dimensional form suggested by the use of color and shadow, while the background is filled in with quilting resembling wood grain. Hand-embroidery protects the raw edges of the tree trunk appliques, but the edges of the shadows intentionally were left raw, as their fraying will add texture to the design.
