Fiber is the medium of our lives and memories. Fabric, pattern and texture literally paint our experiences and are in the background of every moment. This makes contemporary textile and fiber based art powerful in a way that allows the artist to push viewers conceptually because the medium is so inherently familiar.
Contextileized presents artist working with textiles and surface design in unique ways as a vehicle to connect intimately with the audience. This show will take the viewer through a transition starting with functional textile work inspired by visual art. Next it will move you to fabric work that references wearable and usable textiles. All culminating with fine art work using fiber and surface as a jumping off point for its visual and conceptual expression.
