. In Case You’ve Missed It How I Made This: Bisa Butler’s Quilt Portraits Honor the Black Experience « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ART NEWS – Bisa Butler creates vibrant, life-size quilt portraits of Black Americans. The unique process by which she translates photographs into luminous, pieced-cloth images is a synthesis of her formal artistic studies and family traditions. Trained as a painter, Butler later earned a master’s degree in art education. She taught high school art classes for years, making clothes and quilts in her free time. Her many influences include her mother and grandmother, who were sewers; members of the AfriCOBRA (African Commune of Bad and Relevant Artists) movement such as Jeff Donaldson.
