Fiber art is all the rage right now, but I’ve found it hard to really find standouts in this recent sea of wall hangings. However, I bumped into Jacqueline Surdell and fell in love with her large-scale rope macrame-weavings.
A Chicago native, she now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA where she creates large wall hangings inspired by her surroundings, particularly the city-scape and people of Los Angeles. Starting from a loom she creates as a base, her knotting techniques create jumbled knots that mutate and create sculptural effects that are powerful. I especially like that she uses all one color so you can focus on the texture and voids.
