deYoung – Light and Shadow

46 x 27 x 7

Jean Jurgenson

This is Jean’s first 3-D piece. She is often inspired by architecture, and the deYoung Museum in particular. This piece shows the eastern aspect of the Museum in shadow except for the sun shining on the tower. If you look closely, you will see Jean attempted to create the illusion of the deYoung’s pierced copper façade. She used foam core as a structure for the tower section, which lies flat against the wall. She stacked and glued Styrofoam for the sub-structure of the3-D side of the piece, which extends7 inches from the wall.

Foam core, Styrofoam, glue, commercial cotton fabric, netting, acrylic paint, hooks, Velcro

Constructed the sub-structure, machine pieced, stenciled, painted details, machine quilted
