Breaking the Surface: Creating Digital Fiber Art
March 10 – April 30, 2016 • Library & Community Galleries
New Hampshire-based artist Wen Redmond‘s unusual use of fiber combines painting and digital media. She is a mixed media artist whose work embraces several media including digital processes, surface design, and collage. Wen delights in creating dialogue, changing your perspectives on and perceptions of fiber. She works intuitively, encouraging ‘flow’, experimentation, and the inner muse in her workshop participants.
Redmond has created several signature techniques; Digital Fiber, Holographic Images published in Quilting Arts Magazine with an appearance on Quilting Arts TV, and Serendipity Collage Technique published in Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine. She has two Interweave DVD Workshops, Holographic Memories and Textured Digital Photographs.
Redmond’s work has been in galleries, in juried, solo, and invitational shows including an invitation to The National Quilt Museum in Peducah, KY 1986, as well as Quilt National, Art Quilt Elements, Visions,CA, Fiber Directions, Fiber Philadelphia, Columbia University, NYC, Rubin Gallery, Visions, Craft Boston, Niche Finalist 2008, 2010 and 2013, Dinner at Eight’s IQF, and in private and public collections.
Her work has been included many publications such as 500 Art Quilts Lark Book, 1000 Artisan Textiles Book, Studio Quilt State of the Art, SAQA Journal, Quilt Visions CA, Surface Design Journal, Innovative Digital Fiber Images, Fiber Arts Magazine, Crafts Report, and International Quilters Magazine.
