Description

2018 - 2019 66 x 66” Plant-dyed secondhand fabric, hand appliqué and hand quilted A personal story quilt made with all plant dyed second hand fabric about my brother who suffered from Bipolar Schizoaffective Disorder for over twenty years. I worked on this piece for over a year before he passed away. It’s a story of a person whose seasons in life revolved around jails, hospitals, mental institutions, and half way homes. The evolution of this piece is documented through #johnpaulcabreracrabb on instagram with written stories that correlate to selected symbols that honor my brother’s life.
