One of a Kind

Marie-Josłę Danzon (standing with Yuka) is one of the most wonderful artists we know. She and Wojar live in Montreal and the South of France, and comes to the One of a Kind Show to show her work. This year she wasn't selling anything, as they're all commissions. This one piece, I forget it's name, is really astounding. It represents an oasis in Algeria. Oh, and it is a quilt. Sorry that is isn't the best picture, but she uses a lot of metalic gold types of cloth, and it is all old bits of fabric that she collects in France...

a shear pleasure!

love the gold feel: does she mix in bits of mirror? wonder how the art would interact with flash and camera?

it would be interesting to sculpt comparametrically and see what happens...

[Ed: It is gold thread in the cloth. However she did show another piece there that had mirrors woven in.]]
