Oil on bleached bedsheets and fabric (large works), and oil on muslin (small works), 2011

Block prints on cotton, vegetable dyes, made in India 2012

Last year I went to India for the first time.  The colors, the spiritual warmth and loving social environment overwhelmed me.  I knew I wanted to study dying fabric, but I was surprised to find myself falling in love with traditional block printing.  It fueled my latest body of work: when I came back to my NY studio, I began bleaching patterns into bedsheets in response to this immersion into traditional craft.  Last month, I returned to India to soak in the colors and incredible craft for a second time.  I couldn’t have been more inspired.  -Lauren Luloff, 2012
