This wintry night scene is designed to capture the relationship between us, standing alone in the darkness, and the piercing lightness of the world outside.
In this quilt I wanted to explore the ideas of ambiguousness and of taking away, of suggesting. The feelings of the woman staring out the window are up to you- is she hopeful? Sad? Desperate? Inspired? I wanted her expression to be sufficiently unclear that the interpretation reflected the feelings and situation of the viewer rather than the artist.
