The wonderful panoply of shaped-resist dyeing techniques has gone far beyond the boundaries of tradition to become one of the great innovative forces in textile art. This creative vigor has changed the way we conceive of, design, and use textiles, both as apparel and as art as the definition has evolved to include metaphorical and conceptual interpretations of dimensional transformation — from dot, line, plane, mass, volume, time, and space to physical, mental impression and memory. This international exhibition is an energy nexus of this great dimensional change, a creative dynamic focusing on the vigor, elegance, and eloquence of this language of life in cloth. These artists’ interpretations in fiber explore all types of textiles be they organic, metal, polyamide, polypropylene, or otherwise.
