Artist Research – Heather WilsonPosted: April 13, 2015
While researching artists to gather ideas and inspiration I came across Heather Wilson. She creates stunning weaving into which she incorporates found objects. The piece of work that inspired me was a combination of colours and textures and objects that to me, symbolise nature.
Once I saw this my brain went into overdrive on way in which I could create weavings that looked like this. I had never thought of adding found objects into a weaving, not that I had done much weaving beforehand. So I set about looking up on blogs the different way in which people weave and started to create my own Heather Wilson inspired piece.
My weaving sample using different textured threads, string and natural found objects.
