The “Quilt” collection strikes a conversation between art and what is traditionally referred to as “woman’s work.” The artworks combine paint and photographic images, that in their abstract nature resemble fabric. Similarly to quilt makers, the artist chooses the materials for visual effect as well as for expression of personal experience. In the “Quilt” series, Basia Tov uses her photographs of New York City; the place that has shaped her life and has had a significant influence on her as an artist. She focuses on the most basic elements of the city such as: the ground we walk on; the sky; the river, etc.. These are the characteristics of the city that stay constant while constantly changing.
