Nearly 500 photos of artwork with personal insights from 76 of today's most noteworthy artists show the tremendously broad range of possibilities that working in three dimensions can offer. In conjunction with the other two books in this acclaimed series, it invites readers to reexamine fiber art through a multifaceted contemporary lens.
Both established artists and emerging artists whose work is attracting notice are gathered here. Carol Milne's knitted glass and Peter Gentenaar's technique of vacuum forming and air-drying paper fibers are but a few examples of artists using new materials with traditional methods.
The book will be available at Barnes & Noble stores and on the publisher's website http://www.schifferbooks.
com/artistry-in-fiber-vol-2- sculpture-6232.html as well as through Amazon, and is scheduled for a release date late summer of 2017.
I am proud to have work included in this important new series, which will include two future books, Artistry in Fiber: Wall Art (also due late 2017) and Artistry in Fiber: Wearable Art (due in 2018).
