FJ Hooker is a contemporary American artist who is also a 4th generation quilter. In her “Quilts” series, she draws on her family tradition, reinterpreting traditional quilt patterns using wood, recycled aluminum beverage cans, paint, gold leaf and sheet aluminum. Using a mosaic technique, she creates luminous, durable works that emphasize the beauty and artistry of the quilt. In her new series “Glyphs”, she reaches farther back into history to explore her fascination with “markings”, drawing inspiration from runes, cave drawings, hieroglyphs and petroglyphs.
