Madeline Fine
Fiber & Fabric

Artist Statement:

By exhibiting the ever-present existence of the natural world Fine often creates work using creative design and placement tactics. The results can be very playful and whimsical. 

Her creations demonstrate how texture permeates her every fiber and often demonstrates her deep connection with and reverence of the natural world. They can challenge us to identify what has inspired her to incorporate these elements. In a search for intriguing juxtapositions she focuses on the tension of the fragile embossed in the very durable.  

Her work is characterized by the use of recognizable textures in a blending with precious and non precious material. By employing the easily recognizable fabrics of our daily experience as subject matter while placing it in a different situation her works challenge our sense of common and extraordinary.
