Textile treats

I visited the Art_Textiles  exhibition at the Whitworth Art Gallery. It was a real treat to wander through galleries filled with sculpted and challenging textiles.

Here’s a  couple of the  works that caught my attention.

Faith Wilding’s Crocheted Environment (Womb Room). I was able to step right inside the webs and shapes. If you are interested in her work you might want to read this article from the New York Times 1995   Women’s work is sometimes done 

 Mary Sibande’s  Sophie Velucia and Madame CJ Walker  was particularly striking.
