2020 Covid Quilt – Spiral

Covid Quilt – Spiral. Lockdown 1

The spiral represents continuity, that even through this feels so new and extraordinary to us, we know that mother earth has experienced something like this before and moved through it. Shadowed by the spiral is the earth (our hemisphere) as seen from space. Graduating tonally from blood red to indigo – the colours of a bruise – a maker acknowledging the grief, restrictions and isolation that we are enduring.

This is a small work I made in response to the first lockdown in Melbourne for the instragram page @covid19quilt which organised and administered by Kate Just @katjustknits and Tal Fitzpatrick @talfitzpatrick.
