Fibre Arts - Sculpting Light

 

Shary loves to alter and experiment with natural, synthetic and spunbonded fabrics and fibres such as Typar and Lutradur. She distresses, fuses, rusts, paints and combines these fabrics with paint, ink, wax, metallics, images and collage materials.
 
Fabrics and fibres provide the foundation for wall and wearable art, sculpture, screens and embellishments that are rich with surface, colour and innovation.
 
Shary's current works explore how LED lighting enhances fibres and their sculptural form.
