A selection of recent work by San Francisco, California-based artist Jeffrey Sincich. Using textiles and found objects, Sincich celebrates scenes from his environment that might otherwise go unnoticed. Co-owner of a sign painting company in Portland, Oregon, his appreciation for the human hands that create our built environments is apparent throughout his work, which highlights hand-painted signage, architecture, long-standing storefronts, and other “human-made alterations of a place.”
He uses quilting to represent feelings of comfort, tradition, and history. “Like a handmade quilt, elements of the urban environment offer people a sense of place, belonging and safety,” he explains. “They both have traces of the hand that created them and are unique in their own ways. They can be displayed, passed down, altered, mended or repurposed or discarded. They each represent a part of their community, surroundings and history and offer different meanings for anyone who lives with or around them.”
