5 Sculpture Artists Using Textile Techniques

Source: http://www.textileartist.org/

One of the most impressive ways to bridge the link between craft and fine art is through textile work that acts as mixed media sculpture. These pieces may not fit within the confines of traditional fine art media, but nonetheless capture the hearts of collectors.

Galleries are more inclined to showcase pieces of this nature than ever before, and the format allows for a broad array of issues to be discussed in a way that will gather attention from critics and media. Sculpture permits the artist to break free from the concept of the “decorative” and focus more on a message and goal; these 5 sculpture artists use textiles and mixed media to do both.

Judy Tadman and Liz Alpert Fay are just 2 of the 50 inspirational artists featured in the book 3D Mixed Media Textile Art: Learn more here.
