I love everything about these quilted wall hangings by textile artist Leah Evans:

Leah Evans - Arpent BendArpent Bend, 38" x 38"

Leah Evans - Pivotal IrrigationPivotal Irrigation, 34" x 43"

Leah Evans - Alluvial FieldsAlluvial Fields, 24" x 27"

"My current work combines aerial photography, maps, and satellite imagery. I also find myself drawn to the more minute systems of the microbial world. I enjoy the play in scale between magnified microbial life forms and remote sensing images of huge tracts of land. Both scales deal with the translation of scientific information into a visual form. At times, these separate bodies of work merge. The overlap is seen in vessel-like arteries of water, tundra pools that look cellular, and microbes that swim through topographic lines."
