Handmade Fine Art Quilt - Calling All Superheroes! Saving the World This Time...

2019

About

Sometimes the title comes first, before I even begin picking out fabric. The title "Calling All Superheroes! Saving the World This time is Going to Take Every Single One of Us" was my therapy over a year when the Amazon and California burned, children were separated from their parents, and so many other unspeakable wrongs were committed in the name of all of us by our government. But there was hope, too, as children lead us all in climate action, and many other people, in and outside our government, fight for what's right - sometimes simply by fighting to be true to themselves and kind to others, which can be a tough battle on its own. I choose to be hopeful. But I do not think that anyone ever will be able to sleep under this quilt, lol. -Camilla Taylor Camilla Taylor Calling All Superheroes!—Saving the World This Time is Going to Take Every Single One of Us quilted fabric 92h x 76w in 233.68h x 193.04w cm CAT002 Camilla Taylor really is a “wonder woman.” She is the Director of Constitutional Litigation at Lambda Legal, the national legal organization dedicated to achieving full recognition of the civil rights of LGBTQ. She was the architect of the legal case that brought marriage equality to Iowa in 2009 and she was one of the leading strategists behind the United States Supreme Court victory resulting in the freedom to marry for same-sex couples across the country. While saving the world for LGBTQ people everywhere, Camilla somehow also manages to find time to create quilts of extraordinary beauty. Her attention to detail, her use of vibrant colors and her incorporation of playful and provocative patterns and images combine to create a mosaic that one can stare at for hours. A relentless collector of fabric swatches and scraps, Camilla began honing her sewing skills several years ago by producing personalized gift quilts for friends and loved ones. This is the second year Gallery Victor Armendariz has displayed Camilla’s work to the general public.
