Kathy Caraccio Quilt Series

Kathy Caraccio Quilt Series

As a young girl, Kathy Caraccio practiced sewing, dressmaking, knitting and crochet. Her artistic focus shifted to printmaking and works on paper in the ‘60s, and her first collage was a design for a bed quilt constructed from recycled experiments in color etching. As a master printer, Kathy started to recycle un-signable proofs (with the artist’s permission), and turn them into collages. Inspired by Matisse’s hand-painted paper images, Kurt Schwitters’ recycled refuse collages, and Picasso’s use of found objects and non archival papers, the Quilt Series was born in 1972.
