This quilt is based on a photograph I took in Antarctica in February 2020 at an abandoned whaling station on Deception Island, which is the actually the flooded caldera of an active volcano. The whaling station was used to produce whale oil from 1912-1931 and then abandoned, leaving behind steel tanks and furnaces that corroded from the salt spray and the sulfurous steam rising from the water’s edge. They were further damaged by a volcanic eruption and resulting mud slide in 1969. I found some interesting patterns in the corrosion on the decaying equipment. The image for Deception Decomposition was cropped from one of these photos. The image was reshaped, and recolored, and digital painting was added before it was printed on cotton fabric by Spoonflower. It is very heavily quilted with many different colors of polyester and acrylic thread. The backing fabric is from my Color Flow collection for Benartex.
