Opening to the public on January 13th, 2018, Recontructed Color is a quilted fabric exhibition by artist Petra Soesemann. Soesemann's work celebrates the paradoxical human odyssey: sensuous beings navigating a world of mental constructs, while simultaneously proceeding as intuitive beings seduced by a world of matter and fact. It is an on-going exploration of material, subject and style to convey visual narratives via the formal elements of pattern, repetition, color and texture.
Petra Soesemann is Professor of Art and Chair of the Foundation Department at the Cleveland Institute of Art. She earned her BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art andher MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.Her work is in collections including: Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art, NM; Museum of International Folk Art, NM; John M. Walsh III Quilt Collection, NJ; and Artists' Books Collections of MOMA, NY and Walker Art Center, MN. Soesemann has been working with fabric constructions for several decades.
