“Currents” An antique, hand-stitched, pieced-diamond quilted and painted surface is the background for concentric circles of contemporary hand-dyed fabrics. The contrast in textures and shapes provides a visual tension.
Mounted on 23” x 23” canvas; framed with wood.
"Currents" Fiber Art by Sally Dutko
Free Shipping and Insurance within the USA.
Paint, splash, tear, dye, wrap, outline, sew, draw, assemble, cut, spray, glue, join, stretch, rip, repeat. Texture and color vie for leading roles in Sally’s art. A passion for surface design inspires her fiber explorations creating fabric collages and mixed-media wall hangings. Her daily tools: brilliant hand-dyed
cottons and silks, mangled yarns, threads of all colors, twisted and sewn.
As a Fine Arts graduate of Cooper Union in New York City, Sally worked as a graphic designer and art director in publications at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Using dyed and painted fabrics, her
work addresses subjects through color, texture, line, pattern and typography. A full-time Floridian since 2015, residing in Fort Myers, Sally finds that the vegetation and wildlife here provide a vast amount of inspiration. She has received many awards, has shown work nationally, and has curated fiber arts exhibits.
