Barbara Wisnoski

Barbara Wisnoski "Happily freed from precision, this is cutting and sewing as a mantra, as pure, riotous activity." Barbara deconstructs textile items and reconstructs them working with the tactile, visual and the historical qualities embodied in reused textiles, where the wear on the fabric like the wrinkles on a face show character and history.

" I am interested in the relationship between texture and time. . .the prospect of decay is key to the work . . .they are made from living fibres and like us, evolve and deteriorate. Also like us, these pieces become more themselves, therefore more beautiful, with age."
