Artist Crush: Wies Preijde

TEGENDRAADS is an installation by textile designer Wies Preijde consisting of hand-woven walls which create the appearance of real walls, entrances and rooms.

“A combination of lines, colors, views and passageways gives the observer the idea of walking through a transparent home. Different color combinations exist in the abstracted, patterned spaces, resulting in a flat image which gives the holographic impression of a three dimensional expansion.” –

Erin Gilkes is a student at Nova Scotia College of Art & Design. She sells her “Table Tapestries” under the name RINN textiles. They are quite lovely and I’m sure are even more so in person.

Of Interest: Natasza Niedziolka at Horton Gallery

January 9th, 2013 · 2 Comments

Natasza Niediolka’s show at Horton Gallery opens today and the work, done mostly in thread on fabric, appears very compelling. This is the only photo I could find that shows Natasza’s new work.

Artist Crush: Rose de Borman

September 6th, 2012 · No Comments

Rose de Borman is a UK-based textile designer, painter and illustrator whose Etsy shop I make sure to pop into from time to time. Rose always has wonderfully unique and exquisitely-made goods, but these hand-painted, one-of-a-kind silk pillows totally blew me away.
