Risë Nagin’s rectangular fabric constructions are often called “art quilts,” but they are not restricted to developments within the field of textiles alone. Instead, the appliquéd works are natural outgrowths from her prior training and ongoing interest in painting. The artist actually describes herself as “a painter who puts things together in a particular way.” But by choosing silks, velvets, acetates, chiffons, cottons, and other dyed cloths—and incorporating metallic glitter and cellophane—Nagin is able to achieve visual effects beyond the scope of oil and acrylic paints. In her multitextile, layered compositions, she can actually create—rather than illusorily suggest—the transparency and luminescence that painters seek with glazes.
