非裔美籍民俗藝術家哈麗葉‧包爾斯 (Harriet Powers) 出生
18371029

你喜歡用什麼方式來說故事呢?有些人把他們的故事寫下來,有些人則用戲劇或舞蹈把故事演出來。哈麗葉‧包爾斯則是用拼布說出她的故事。 

非裔美籍民俗藝術家哈麗葉‧包爾斯於18371029日生於喬治亞的鄉村地區。她用拼布的方式記錄下來當地的歷史傳說、聖經故事,以及天文事件。她運用的是傳統的貼花技巧:把圖案形狀裁剪下來,再縫製到棉被上頭。


What are your favorite ways to tell a story? Some people write their stories; others act them out in plays or dances. Harriet Powers quilted her stories.

African-American folk artist Harriet Powers was born into slavery in rural Georgia on October 29, 1837. She used her quilts to record local historical legends, Bible stories, and astronomical events, using a traditional appliqué technique--stitching cut-out shapes of fabric onto the quilt.
