Craft Contemporary

Los Angeles, CA

This fiber exhibition presents ten contemporary West Coast artists who generate large scale sculptural forms through experimentation with gravity, process, and mass. Using materials such as vinyl, industrial felt, wire, cotton canvas and nylon, the exhibition artists create abstract works that underscore the contemporary transformation of the material definitions of fiber.  Exhibition artists: Miyoshi Barosh, Phyllis Green, Lloyd Hamrol, Mary Little, Christy Matson, Victoria May, Senga Nengudi, Lisa Soto, Kay Whitney, and May Wilson.
