Keeping Track of Time: Quilts and Collages by Jette Clover

...
Although Jette Clover uses the quilt form (three layers stitched together) in many of her works, her compositions in cloth do nothing more to address that stylistic tradition. Instead, they push the boundaries of what is considered cutting-edge craft to include fine art in fiber, as evidenced in her latest pieces on display in April.
Her largely tonal compositions often feature scraps of writing, subtle markings, and show amazing dexterity with materials. Clover explains the impetus to her own work best when she states, "I find a compelling beauty in the textured surfaces of peeling paint, corroded metal, ripped paper and mended cloth. And I am fascinated by the random marks often left behind on these surfaces showing the process and transformation caused by time and the elements."
Clover's work is represented in many international public and private collections, including the American Museum of Art and Design. A resident of Cocoa, Florida since 2001, Clover is the former curator of the Dutch Textile Museum in Tilburg, Netherlands, and is responsible for staging the first European art quilt exhibition there in 1997. The author of four books on fiber art, Clover is a founding member of ArtsEtc, a Florida fiber and design group that meets monthly at the Harris House Annex.
