Fiber Art

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.
