Emily Richardson – “After the Sea Ship”
Fiber artist Emily Richardson composes in sheets of painted silk organza. Photographs of Richardson’s abstract fiber works resemble oil paintings or even encaustics with their rich, translucent strata. Hand-constructed from painted cloth of varying degrees of transparency, colors painted on layers of fabric show through and optically mix.
