Evidence of Paradise presents the most recent work of fiber artist M. Joan Lintault. The wellspring for the series in the exhibition flows, in part, from events, past journeys, research, and a drive for personal growth. Lintault presents visual and symbolic images in an objective and unbiased way, offering the opportunity for unfettered thinking and allowing the observer to mentally complete the work. She starts her work from raw fabric, dyeing, printing, painting, and drawing on it. She assembles her imagery in an openwork style using applique, embroidery, and machine-made lace to connect it all. There is no background, only foreground, emphasizing all the elements of the quilt composition.
