The Story Of This Quilt

Bosna Quilt No. 5 - Untitled

This piece of textile art is untitled. It was completed in November 2018 as part of my exhibition at The Crypt Gallery in St Ives Cornwall.

Inspired by the Bosna Quilts and my own interactions with that story – its horrors and its triumphs. My textile art is evolving through these influences. I am changing as a person and an artist.

Lucia Lienhard-Giesinger has also been shaped by this quilting story. Here are the words of her husband: ‘She has changed - my wife; mother of three. When she became part of the lives of the Bosnian women, how could she have known that these women’s melancholy and stoic composure would become familiar traits to her and have a lasting effect on her life and work. In a word, while Bosnia was being reborn anew out of violence, misery and displacement, a new Lucia was emerging. She has learnt that it is good not to work alone. And art has emerged from the hardships experienced by a nation.’
