For Shakespeare, writing in Romeo and Juliet, , the term “wild goose chase” referred to a race in which riders followed a lead horse ,copying every move, much like wild geese flying in formation. An almost pointless pursuit.
In this artwork, the geese (the triangles) are chasing each other around a never-ending loop, and some of them are pretty wild…The triangles are called “flying geese “in traditional quilting – so this is an obvious interpretation of the phrase.
Created for a SPECTRA exhibit titled: You Could be Quoting Shakespeare
