By Aminah Robinson. Completely hand stitched.
Aminah Robinson, an Ohio artist who does textile mixed-media.
A stunning public art commission at the Freedom Center is Aminah Robinson's amazing "quilts" -- what she calls "RagGonNons" because they "rag on and on." They both tell a story of her family's journeys beginning -- in the upper left corner -- in Africa. The medium: cloth (including socks), thread, buttons, beads, ties, paper, paint, graphite, shells, and music boxes.

Zenobia- 54” x 60” 2006 Original designed African Flower Girl. In my imagination, there was a time when Africa was populated by a society of beautiful people, rich in culture. Zenobia is a young girl just returning from the flower market. She wears her finest dress and robes, adorned by 3-dimensional, hand beaded jewelry and trapunto headdress.

Mud Cloth: If you know Malian fashion designer, the late Chris Seydou, these designs & textiles, known as ‘mud cloth’, are probably familiar. Originating amongst the Bambara people of Mali whose name for this style of textile-making is Bògòlanfini, these handmade mud-dyed cotton fabrics have become a symbol of Malian cultural identity that is used in dressing, design & art. The process involved in making Bògòlanfini textiles is an organic eco-friendly activity using all natural substances.

Africa | Asante Wrapper. Ghana | mid to late 19th century | Imported cotton cloth and black pigment | Historically Asante royalty wore adinkra, large wrappers with stamped patterns, only during periods of mourning.
