Sheila Crider combines painting, drawing, braiding, stitching and weaving to create three-dimensional abstract forms. Through these works, which are both beautiful and evocative, Crider has found an inventive and original process that enables her to visually explore multiple intersections between material, place, tradition, race, gender, history, culture, narrative, art, painting, object and picture.

Intersectional Painting is an on-going series of works using quilt batting as a metaphor for community in an examination of the 12 words above and their connectedness symbolized by braiding, stitching and weaving. “Intersectional Painting” uses painting, stitching and weaving  to achieve a narrative abstraction in sculptural relief and three-dimensional form.
