Evidence of fabric embellished with needle and thread has been found as far back as the Cro-Magnon days (30,000 B.C.). The artists featured here, writing with stitchery, challenge our expectations of what is commonly considered a domestic art.

L'explication en vidéo est très bien faite, ça donne envie d'y aller, l'endroit a effectivement l'air emprunt d'histoire et les oeuvres exposées sont chacune si personnelle et compréhensible de tous, la visite doit être très émotionnelle.

Artist Profile: Annette Jeffery

Cloth has had a profound influence on our personal social, and cultural life and it is to this complex relationshithat I turn for inspiration in my work. It is a tactile material for which we have strong, intimate, physical and emotional connections. These experiences happen at a deeply human level and have been felt since man first fashioned clothing. It would seem that we have a tender and dependent relationship on this ancient material as it can produce unique pesonal memories stretching back to our first shawl or coverlet to the shroud we will wear in death, it comforts and shields us from all weathers. So close is this bond that the feel or smell of a particular personal item of clothing or kind of cloth carries memories which are stornger than any photograph may evoke and can remind us of a particular time, place or person. A well worn jacket echoes the contours of the owner's body; a glove takes on the shape of the hand that wore it: a carefully folded hankerchief found in a drawer will speak intimately of its owner.
This intimacy I hope is reflected in my felted heads which I believe give a bold and powerful presence.
I am constantly discovering new ways to produce fabric sculpture .

Karly Shelton's curator insight, May 31, 1:18 AM

Darbey is a textile artist whose main goal is to tranform her two-dimensional drawings into three-dimensional sculptures. She does this through the use of a sewing machine and water-soluble glue. The glue acts as a sort of binding agent that allows the thread to become pliable and manipulative.

 

This is the first time I have seen an artist combine thread with an adheasive to create sculptures. As with other fiber and textile artists Darbey is combing two materials in a unique way. I like the simplicity of the materials she works with yet the intricacy of her designs.

Shoulderache & The Closet: A Brief History of Dutch Wax Fabric | Contemporary Textile Artists | Scoop.it

There are some fabrics that are so iconic that they are instantly recognizable and have their own following. One of these is Dutch Wax Fabric. What is Dutch Wax Fabric? You've probably seen it, loved it and never knew what it was. It is that vibrant, eye-catching print that is worn in parts of Africa, namely Nigeria, Togo, Ghana and several other countries.

Crystina Castiglione's curator insight, March 30, 2013 11:29 PM
This article really brought to light what being globally connected can do for not just artists, but curators as well and how it can be used to create an entirely new type of exhibition. It also describes a new age of art that infuses the way we use technology, especially within social media networks.

Karly Shelton's curator insight, May 31, 1:16 PM

This site boasts an excellent collection of contemporary fiber and textile artists. The group of artists was extablished in 1962 as a way to exhibit the new ways artists are using textiles in their work. Their "Artists" page features a wide variety of artists working within the medium, along with images of their work and a brief bio.

 

I am particularly drawn to artist Julia Burrowes small felt squares carefully arranged in a grid-like fashion. I could spend all day looking at each artist. A great resource for students to possibly choose an artist that appeals to them and research that artist further.
