Artistic Endeavors – The Blues

One of my art quilt groups has an upcoming challenge to make a quilt with denim. I’m not too crazy about this one as I find denim hard to sew and the resulting piece to be heavy. Maybe I’ll pass on it. I don’t even have any old jeans to cut up.

Meanwhile, check out what artist Ian Berry does with denim.

This short video shows his painstaking, but technically simple process – denim jeans, scissors, glue.  Thanks to Abby Glassenberg for bringing Ian Berry to my attention.

  2. I have seen his work but not that video so thank you (and Abby; one of my favorite people.). He seems to be forgetting the part where his vision and hands meet with his brain to create his art… Me thinks, not so simple!

    Well, he did not sell himself so great 😛
    “People ask me if it is difficult and really technical, but it is not
    “It’s just me, my hands, scissors and glue”
    I think the art work is incredibly well done. I suppose he lives up there in the loft, surrounded by jeans, and sleeps in that tent that I saw in the back ground.
    Thank you for sharing this
