NEXT ARTIST: Cynthia Schira

Carol Schepps

With textiles and thread as my medium, I have merged my love of fabric, color and graphic design. Using clean lines and meticulous construction techniques borrowed from years of training in graphic design and a career in fashion design, I incorporate design integrity and construction complexity with the highest degree of craftsmanship.

My artwork examines light, reflection and complex elements. By unfolding the relationship of lights, darks and color I break down an image and translate it into a melange of fabric and construction techniques. My abstract work examines shapes juxtaposing the same elements. Although they are a slower and more tedious medium, fabric and thread appeal to me more than the paint, pen and pencil of my graphic design training because of their flexibility and texture.
