ArchiTEXTURE: Hard Edges in a Soft Medium ExhibitionNew Westminster, British Columbia
Crafts, Visual Arts — Excursion
Can we capture the gleam of glass, the sharp edges of metal, the coolness of tile and stone with fabric? We are four New Westminster textile artists, fascinated with the tac-tile world. The materials, processes and patterns of the man-made structures around us inspire our art. We are builders too, working with commercial or hand-dyed fabrics, planning, drafting, and constructing pieced tops, layering them to create wall art based in the tradition of quilt-making. We measure, cut and assemble; masters of the tools and machines that work for us. We offer this exhibition as an exploration of opposites: hard/soft, smooth/rough, warm/cold.
