The Grand Gallery of Europe/Middle East's Contributions to the SAQA Benefit Auction 2014

Daniela Dancelli (I)

Tangle, by Danieal Dancelli

I made “TANGLE”, inspired by the nature that surrounds me. Some time ago, I took a picture of a tree that had a dense tangle of branches. These were creating wonderful play of light and color. Thinking of those weaves, I thought it was a metaphor for life, often tangled and complicated but wonderfully colorful!

Detail of "Tangle"

I used paper from magazines manipulated, cotton yarns, and fabrics to create the branches of cotton hand-dyed, I free-motion quilted and printed with the technique of monoprint.

This quilt will be in section 1 of the Benefit Auction, beginning on Sept. 15 th. Help support SAQA, and build your art quilt collection by bidding often!


  1. The stitching has a lot of energy in this piece. Fascinating.

  2. Love the movement in Daniela's piece, and the colours.

  3. I know Daniela and her quilts that are beautiful for the colours and precise in the details.
