Vicki Essig - Asheville NC
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 small found objects in these weavings. 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, at least a moment, become lost in the discovery of the minute(mīˈn(y)o͞ot) the quiet of repetition, and the beauty of nature and pattern.
