Suzanne Aubert's Cape
Merrilyn George
Collection: Connective Threads

Wall Quilt - soft materials, cotton, silk and wool
Piecing, appliqué, hand quilting, embroidery,
computer-generated printing, dyeing with earth and plant dyes.

This work is about the work of Suzanne Aubert, and the marks
and signposts she has left for others.
The blanket is a metaphor for the care and protection of the
under-privileged, while the lining speaks of the intrinsic relationship
with the spiritual dimension, the internal conversation.
The earth and plant dyes (walnut and eucalyptus),are symbols of
our land and the way it provides.
