Continuum featured on cover of Interdisciplinary Journal Of Partnership Studies

Ree was featured as the cover artist in the Spring 2021 issue of Interdisciplinary Journal Of Partnership Studies.


From the artist's statement for the issue...


"The quilt pictured on the cover of this issue of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies is called Continuum. It was created in 2018. It is 16” x 17”, and was created in response to Turbulence, a musical composition by Libby Meyer, as part of the Composers in the Wilderness program.The recurring, descending pattern of melody makes me think of water; it descends as rain, flows from hillsides and mountains, and gathers in streams. The melody dominates the other musical notes, so I chose to make the rivulets of water dark against a lighter background. Water rises and falls like musical notes on sheet music. The melody becomes discordant, evoking flowing water crashing up against obstacles. My water rivulets surge up and meet with printed areas of confused imagery. The water flows over and around the obstacles; it returns to relative calm, and the process repeats itself. The overlying quilting lines emphasize this continuum. The abrupt ending is depicted by the dark rectangle in the right margin. The image and music are finite, but the cycle of water continues forever."
