The latest issue of Fiberarts magazine (Nov/Dec 2007) is out. I love the cover image of this untitled sculpture by Rachel Hunt. There are some great features in this issue with textiles in 3D and their annual student showcase. You can see lots more images on their website.
"Mandy Prowse studied painting and printmaking at Maidstone College of Art. She explores natural and human forms and the interconnectedness of all things. Themes in her work relate to birth, mortality and metamorphosis. Her altered books are minimalistic and organic combining a modern aesthetic with an almost Victorian touch. If you told me these books were 100 years old I wouldn’t think twice about it.”
