MARIA SIMONSSON "Textile Vessels and Tactile Figures"
Maria Simonsson defies many of the western norms of art. Her medium is unusual and unpredictable but she produces grand works of art. Maria creates sculpture from wire, wire mesh, layers of fabric and her own intricate needlework.
" The challenge is to create things with textiles that you don't expect to be made of fabric," Simonsson says.
Maria draws inspiration from all over the world, her native Sweden as well as Africa. Maria's interest in other cultures is particularly apparent in this exhibit.
Maria is in a class of artist all her own. Drawing inspiration from around the world and breaking down walls to create art that is groundbreaking yet accessible.
Please join us for the opening of this wonderful exhibit, June 3, 6:00-8:30 p.m.
