Using fabric in my abstract art: how fiber communicates meaning

fabric holds energy and fabric holds memory

I love working with fabric/fiber - the tactility, the fact that fabric holds memory,  and that it holds energy. Also, there’s a powerful association with our bodies - the fact that from our birth, until our death, fabric is the closest thing that touches us - It’s intimate; it speaks to our security, our comfort - sometimes, even our survival.  

Making art from fabric references can all these things....it can be a powerful way to communicate.
