The Blanket Project
Artist Naomi Clark
Under the Blanket Project, Naomi Clark creates what she titles Quilt Paintings. She breathes new life into old wool camping blankets culled from EBay, flea markets and garage sales. Naomi describes her process as “painting with fabric.” Beyond painting the blankets, Naomi uses other processes such as dyeing, cutting, appliquéing, and embroidery to make the Quilt Paintings.
Photographing the blankets in outdoor installations has proven to be an essential part of The Blanket Project. Nature is a great inspiration to Fort Makers. To see Quilt Paintings posed in nature installations, view the Forts We’ve Made section of our website.
