I can’t believe I am saying this, but fiber at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts in Hamilton, Ohio is just about a week from closing, and I am just now writing about it!
fiber features art by four artists working in fiber and color. I am one of the four artists. In fact, the opening reception (which was actually several weeks into the show) was the last stop on my 2 1/2 month tour outside. I went from the residency at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation, to the International Quilt Festival, to the opening of fiber.
This is Jonpaul Smith being an artist.
Smith is inspired by the complex relationships of systems and patterns that control and dictate the world in which we live.
No matter what material he chooses, the process begins with cutting the materials into strips of various sizes, then painstakingly overlapping or weaving them into meticulous, intricate compositions.
I love it. You can see more amazing on Jonpaul’s website.
Stay tuned for more images from this beautiful show.
