SOFA Chicago 2014

Cashing in on one of the many perks of having a grown child who lives in Chicago, my husband and I scheduled a visit with her to coincide with SOFA Chicago 2014.



It goes without saying that being in a gigantic exhibition space, with jaw-dropping work from more than 70 international galleries, bordered on sensory overload. But one gets into a rhythm navigating among the displays and the many observers, and soon becomes swept up in the sheer visual luxury of such an exhibition. 

It’s no exaggeration to say that much of the work was mind-boggling in its intelligence and expertise of craftsmanship.

no title available


Unfortunately photography was prohibited so I took a ton notes instead, and actually found it quite liberating to be able to just absorb the work, without the crutch of a camera as interpreter. 

In lieu of those missed photos, I’ve scanned images from gallery booklets and web-links to give you an idea of what caught my eye.

While mulling over my notes afterward, it occurred to me that there was a recurring theme: many artists excelled at combining disparate materials, accomplishing a seamless pairing in such a way that a new “conversation” was begun which traversed the traditional confines of media. 

The elegant silver and silk jewelry of Jeonghye Park, 
which I mistook for blown glass upon first glance.

Trap_1, 2013  Hand-dyed silk, 925 silver, copper
400x400x80mm

Initially I was disappointed that there was comparatively little fiber work displayed, and the art seemed to be overwhelmingly weighted toward glass. However, it soon became apparent that references to the techniques and materials used within a textile practice were common, even among works that contained no fiber. Again, many of these pieces stressed the interaction and coupling of materials one wouldn’t usually expect to find together. 

The upper half of Michael Bauermeister’s sculpture 
appeared to have been laced together.

34 x 8 x 8


A wooden bowl by Thomas Hopkins Gibson
a wood-turner who uses silver to mimic stitches to “repair” 
the natural cracks and faults in the “green” wood used in his pieces.



Whether intentional or not, I think this ongoing allusion to fiber art in general, and stitching in particular, speaks well to the power of textiles. It also acknowledges, regardless of medium,  how deeply ingrained the intrinsic techniques embraced through textiles are in the psyches of many artists.

   Stitched Bottle I, (MD2) Maple, silver, silk, 25cm

 
And be sure to check out the full-scale elephant masks 
made of wood sections that are stitched together.
 Unfortunately I wasn't able to transfer an image to this blog, 
 
The delight of discovering these unexpected pairings of seemingly incongruous materials via a serious nod to the techniques we textile artists rely upon, left me feeling quite inspired by the possibilities that reside in stretching beyond the predictable, while still remaining loyal to the roots of fiber traditions. It's a virtual goldmine of artistic potential. 
The challenge is to bring this idea back to the studio and to see where it leads.

TextileArt around the World

Waterbury Center member Elizabeth Fram has had her work included in the newly published book "TextileArt around the World" by Ellen Bakker of the Netherlands.














Featuring over 800 photographs of the art of 160 international artists, this is a unique collection of a great variety of textile art joined together in one book. ‘TextileArt around the world’ is the international sequel to ‘Textile is alive!’, which is an earlier publication displaying works from Dutch and Belgian textile artists. Each page is a new introduction to an artist.

Fiber Art on Film

Montpelier member Karen Henderson has had two of her landscape inspired fiber wall pieces used on the set of the feature length film "Louder than Bombs".

     (above image: 'Peripheral' by Karen Henderson)

The movie is directed by Joachim Trier, an award winning Norwegian director and writer. Starring Gabriel Bryne, Jesse Eisenberg, Rachel Brosnahan, and Isabelle Huppert, among others, it is scheduled to release sometime in 2015.

Here's hoping we'll get more than a glimpse of the pieces once all the editing is done!

ICA in Boston featuring Fiber Sculpture

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Fiber: Sculpture 1960present
October 1, 2014 - January 4, 2015
 
The Institute of Contemporary Art
West Gallery
100 Northern Avenue
Boston, MA 02210
617-478-3100
info@icaboston.org
 
 
Fiber: Sculpture 1960present is the first exhibition in 40 years to examine the development of abstraction and dimensionality in fiber art from the mid-twentieth century through to the present. Adapting age-old techniques and traditional materials, artists working in fiber manipulate gravity, light, color, mass, and transparency to demonstrate the infinite transformations and iterations of their material. Early pioneers such as Magdalena Abakanowicz, Sheila Hicks, Lenore Tawney, and Claire Zeisler demonstrated a revolutionary redefinition of fiber art in the 1960s and 70s, showcasing radical, non-representational forms. Fiber: Sculpture 1960present addresses the cultural and critical forces that contributed to the initial efflorescence of the fiber revolution in the mid-century, its contraction in the 1980s, and its recent reclamation by contemporary artists.


Crisscrossing generations, nationalities, processes, and approaches, the exhibition features approximately 50 works by 34 artists—including works by the aforementioned artists alongside Olga de Amaral, Eva Hesse, Ernesto Neto, Rosemarie Trockel, Anne Wilson, and Haegue Yang—that range from small-scale weavings to immersive environments, all made in fiber.

Textile Artists: Enrich Your Studio Practice


(Image: 'Gently Steaming" by Elizabeth W. Fram, from her 'Reclaim' series)


Elizabeth Fram of Waterbury Center has written an article featured online at FiberArt Now magazine.

She was inspired to write the piece in an effort to encourage others to consider seeking the benefits of an ongoing artistic conversation with a creative peer. It discusses the positive impact such a connection can have and that it has become one of her most valued tools when shereturnt to her studio to work.


"As artists, many of us spend the majority of our days alone in our studios. If you’re like me, you welcome the solitary hours to puzzle through the many stages of a piece as it evolves toward completion. But as much as I need that time to myself to let my ideas grow and develop on their own, I have come to realize that one of the greatest assets of my studio practice has been developing a trusted relationship with another artist.
In 2009, I fortuitously made the acquaintance of Dianne Shullenberger, another artist working with fiber....Click Here to read the complete article"

Collect and Connect: Creating Visual Journals

Jackie Abrams will be teaching an upcoming workshop:

Collect and Connect: Creating Visual Journals
Tuesday, September 9 – Friday, September 12, 2014


at the All Souls Unitarian Church
in West Brattleboro, Vermont



This is an experimental class, investigating both materials and techniques, and exploring the ways in which they can be assembled and combined.

Participants will construct with crocheting, coiling, twining, netting (looping), wrapping, stitching, random weave, and plaiting. Fabrics, sticks, shells, stones, seedpods, wires, metal pieces, plastic bags, and grasses are only some of the materials that may be incorporated. 

Jackie says: "This is your class. You can focus on completing one or more pieces, for the wall or tabletop, or create daily “samplers” that may or may not be put together into a larger piece. The possibilities are limited only by your interest and imagination!"

Workshop fee: $300 for all four days.
