“Fabrication”: Deborah Winiarski’s Latest Post for ProWax Journal

“During the past century,” writes Deborah Winiarski, “artists working with fiber have pushed the boundaries of what can be considered a textile, as well as how textiles are represented within the context of contemporary painting and sculpture – challenging long held distinctions between textile, craft, and fine art.” In her latest post for ProWax Journal, “Fabrication,” Winiarski surveys the work of eight artists (including herself) who combine encaustic with a diverse range of materials.

Sandi Miot, Red Biome, 2016, encaustic, fiber, yarn, felt, fabric, paper, lace, dried plants, seeds, pods, pastels, 15 x 18 x 4 in.
