I'm away in the woods teaching at Squam, but I wanted to leave you with some colorful eye candy. Textiles are so much more than knitting, crochet, sewing or quilting. Some talented folks raise it to an art form, like artist Serene Garcia Dalla Venezia. Her color palette is lovely and I just want to go up and touch her beautiful sculptures! The bits of metallic make her organic work shine. Original article here.
Chilean textile artist Serena Garcia Dalla Venezia creates thoughtfully composed arrangements of hand-sewn fabric balls, producing texture and depth by grouping together dozens of differently sized and shaped spheres. Appearing almost like organic growths, her works seem to be transforming before your eyes, which makes sense when you consider her fascination with accumulation and chaos. You can see more of Venezia’s smaller works and large-scale installations on her website.
