Fiber art is having a moment. We’ve witnessed the rising popularity of woven hangings and even knots. I have had my eye on these minimalist, abstract works from Ethan Cook. They remind me of a framed modern quilt (without the quilting). His art has been described as paintings without paint. Take a look.
German artist, Meike Legler, similarly “paints” with natural fibers. His works are definitely reminiscent of modern quilting, with his use of organic shapes and more vibrant colors. I really like the effect of the more subtle pieces, especially the almost monochromatic ones that rely on texture.
I am inspired to dust off my fabric piecing skills and give fiber arts a try. Stay tuned.
