Jessica Bell on Buy Some Damn Art

Tuesday, January 24, 2012 · 3 Comments

How stunning are these textile works by Jessica Bell? They are all for sale on my other site, Buy Some Damn Art. I envy whoever ends up with these lovely pieces!

The artist on her process:

“I start with a piece of fabric that is very small and I build out. I put pieces together and then I take them apart in a different way. I cut the pieces up and reassemble them relentlessly… I actually think these pieces are made in much same way as the paintings and collages I have made in the past, this compulsive taking apart and putting together, adding and subtracting.”

    Although I am not a fan of modern art, I do like this better than I would in paint. I would like a quilt/spread for bed made with this method.
