Light and Shadows 1&2 Timna Tarr – South Hadley, Massachusetts

Light and Shadows Parts 1&2

Ruth E. Renkel wrote, “Never fear shadows. They simply mean there’s a light shining somewhere nearby.” When I read that quote, I knew it would be inspiration for this challenge.      Through their work, Solar Sister is the light shining literally and figuratively nearby.

Much of my work is about color and value. In these pieces, I wanted to show the balance between light and shadow, and how each one enhances the other. The diagonal quilting lines     soften the harsh edges of the contrasting light and dark fabrics, while the repetitive pieced rectangles reference solar panels and their industrial grid design.
