Vicki Essig
I am fascinated with light and translucency, the contrast between the fragile, and the strong. With natural materials, I show the small and delicate as the powerful and significant. My work is comprised of fine handwoven fiber. I incorporate into these weavings, small found objects that find a home in the subtle piece. The work is then framed with double glass, allowing for the intricate piece to remain transparent. Shadows originating from the composition give it an extra dimension.
In viewing my work, my hope is that you will for at least a moment, become lost in the discovery of the minute, the quiet of repetition, and the beauty of nature and pattern.
