Description Biding Time in the Gold Flocked Basement Twixt Death and Funeral. I worked on this digital quilt while visiting my dad in the hospital before he died. I also worked on it in the horrible basement, the basement that hardly changed since my parents bought the house in 1973, because the Colorado heat upstairs was insufferable. I worked on it the day of his funeral too. This is my inheritance, my anger, my retreat into art, my channeling bad memories into beauty. Created in Photoshop.
Ann Stretton, Madison Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement I am both a mixed media painter and digital artist. I've been exhibiting since the early 1980s, and creating digital images since 1985. I received my BFA from Colorado State in 1984 and my MFA from The University of Wisconsin in 1993. I work with "mixed metallic media"--metal leaf, prismatic glitter and nacreous paint. My computer-created works also utilize "metal" as well as luscious color and light.
