Textile artist profiles (or not!)

for my two textile artists i have chosen unconventional artists. the first El Anatsui because he uses metal and found metal at that. He also proves that you can create something of great beauty with a simple group of materials. here are two great videos of him and his work. One installing 'Between Earth and Heaven' at the Met and at the Rice Gallery in Houston.

my second choice is Maurizio Anzeri who i have just discovered and who is still quite 'new'. i chose him because he embroiders photographs (which i like to do too)and quite disturbing ones at that!

  1. Certainly a very interesting choice, especially Maurizio Anzeri, I haven't heard of either artist, so I shall be very interested to see how they might influence your work.
