New Generation by Louisiana Bendolph

Wall Hangings by Louisiana Bendolph at San Francisco International Airport, San Francisco - New Generation
Louisiana Bendolph created a beautiful geometric piece based on a 2007 etching with Paul Bott Press. For four generations, women who live in the isolated, African-American hamlet of Gee's Bend, have been creating bold dynamic quilts. Their quilting tradition was influenced by female slaves who pieced together strips of cloth to make bedcovers to keep themselves and their children warm in unheated shacks that lacked running water, telephones, and electricity. Louisiana Bendolph is among the younger generation of quilt makers, who is known for her stunning abstractions. Originally a quilt, then an etching, and here translated into ceramic tile, this artwork depicts an innovative approach to a quintessentially American art form found at the Terminal 3 of San Francisco International Airport.
