Fiber art vol. 4 - leijuvia lankoja

Amanda McCavour
Super-spiro-scripple Density Test, 2010

If you've been wondering why I write so much about fiber art that is simply because I feel that I'd love to do some also. I get inspiration from these talented women. And the last artist is Amanda McCavour. She has different and challenging technique as you can see. Work looks very fragile and it's floating in the air. I admire all these skilled women. They must have a lot of patience...

Jos ihmettelet miksi kirjoittelen juuri tekstiilitaiteesta niin selitys löytyy omasta halustani kokeilla kyseistä taidemuotoa. Mutta muutenkin on kiva kirjoitella inspiroivista asioista. Ja tekijöiden esittely tuntuu tällä hetkellä mukavalta tutustumisretkeltä muiden taiteilijoiden töihin ja työtapoihin. Kunpa itseltä löytyisi yhtä pitkää kärsivällisyyttä ja pieteettiä kuin näiltä naisilta!

"For as long as I can remember I have been drawing and crafting things out of paper, glitter, glue, plastic beads and string. This is my foundation for an interest in material exploration. It continues to interest me that folding and cutting paper, can transform a blank sheet into a snowflake or that knotting embroidery floss can create a patterned bracelet.  It is these slight shifts in materials that still drives me to make work."

"My interest lies in creating spaces and objects that lie somewhere between real and drawn. I am interested in thread's assumed vulnerability, its ability to unravel, and its strength when it is sewn together."
