-Confluence merges the talented world of two Michigan artists who weave their own observations, themes and conceptions into extraordinary fiber art using both traditional and contemporary materials and techniques.
Jennifer Gould studies, experiments and is fascinated with textiles in all their varied forms. Influenced by nature year-round and abstract non-objective shapes and wild colors, her pieces involve a wide diversity of techniques combined with unusual fabrics. Gould creates unique wall-hung and freestanding textiles as well as textile figures to express her place in the world.
Being from India, a country with an extremely rich heritage of art and culture, Boisali Biswas has always had a deep-rooted attachment to traditional art forms of India and owes some of her stylization to the captivating traditional patterns and the rich array of colors. Adapting to Western Styles and techniques, combining them with her lifelong fascination for ethnic arts around the world, have all been a melting pot for her to create a multicultural ‘canvas’ of fiber assemblages, art quilts and wallpaper weavings.
Confluence opens with a reception on Friday, June 2 from 6-9 p.m with gallery talk at 7 p.m. The exhibition runs through June 30 during Art House hours, Tuesday-Friday 12-5 p.m. and Saturday 12-4 p.m.
Liz Fiero is an artist and educator, who specializes in the fine arts. She has an art and psychology degree from Eastern Michigan University. Her art is varied and includes realistic, surrealistic (dream and subconscious) and abstract painting, murals and mixed media.
