Exhibition Statement
The Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts is proud to present its Spring 2019 Faculty Exhibition, “Taking Form: Fibers & Fabric,” showcasing work by Kristina Goransson, Jodi Colella, and Merill Comeau.

‘Taking Form’ showcases works at the intersection of fiber art and sculpture: narrative-based textile wall hangings, 3D sculptural forms that blend needlework with found objects, and elegant wall hangings of sculpted felt. These three artists, who all teach fiber arts at the Eliot School, are deeply influenced by the natural world.

Hints of flora, fauna, fractals, and natural patterns appear across the show. Each artist practices innovation in manipulating materials – deconstructing and altering garments, combining unlikely materials, and manually working raw wool into malleable forms. Each artist explores the entanglement of women's roles in society and continues to learn through travelling, teaching, and creating collaborative artworks in their communities. Each pushes the limits of materials and combines study of ancient traditions and contemporary cultures.

Through deconstruction and rebuilding, these three powerful artists weave new understandings of form.
