Danish artist Anne-Marie Nygaard Eilertsen’s epic tapestries invite the viewer to explore the symbols and narratives in each piece. Her long career has seen her explore many themes including nature, the human body and more recently her own inner self.
Brooklyn based Alicia Scardetta brings a fresh approach to tapestry weaving with her pared back approach that highlights the warp rather than hiding it. This technique and the ensuing texture in colours that pop, brings a contemporary edge to her desirable work.
Textile art is often described as painting with thread and British artist Rachel Wright is the epitome of this. Her attention to detail and artistic flair makes her work incredibly life like while elevating the subject into vivid and compelling images.
