Joan Schulze's quilts are created through combining photo-transfer processes and paint with the cottons and silks more commonly associated with quiltmaking. New processes lead her to new ideas, and new ideas lead to new processes; such as the alternative photographic processes she's adapted for her own uses over the years.
Collage is her favorite way to think and work. Collect, cut up, layer, glue, paint again, reposition, cut up, photograph, print, add, subtract - until the materials and ideas become something greater than the original impulse to begin.
