'
Grimsley
• Work of 100 artists who vigorously push the boundaries with techniques,
processes, and materials
• Highlights the use of a multitude of textile materials, from horsehair to high-tech
polymers
• Personal comments from each artist allow for deeper insights about why
the works succeed
Connecting us to thewide variety of contemporary fiber art inwall-mounted format,
this resource combines more than 600 photos with personal comments from 100
of today’s established and emerging artists. In conjunction with the other two
books in this acclaimed series, it invites readers to re-examine fiber art through a
multifaceted contemporary lens. The creators here are pushing the boundaries of
what wall-mounted fiber art is, using fibers of paper, metal, fiberglass, milkweed
seeds, or high-tech polymers. Bhakti Ziek’s computerized loom work and Sue
Benner’s textile-collage quilts are but a few of the examples of how artists expertly
combine different fiber techniques in a single piece, go beyond the technical
processes, and cross-pollinate mediums.
As research director at Vose Galleries,
Anne Lee
wrote and designed numerous
exhibit catalogs.
