Here and There

Fiber: Hand Knit Wire and cord

43" h x 50 " w x 4" d



Description: With this I am expressing whimsy, the here and there and the hard and soft of life while exploring the combination of wire and other fiber.

Artist Statement

My art is an exploration of texture, color and dimension, for which I use the infinite possibilities of hand knitting, with fulling, to create sculptural forms.  I have added the knitting of wire to expand add to my medium.

These works may reflect a mood, an emotion, an idea or societal condition.  Fiber is a wonderfully dynamic medium.  Free from any notion of patterns but armed with a lifetime of technique, I let the work evolve as it will.
