Kristin Hoelscher-Schacker—Art with Fiber—Kris expresses art with fiber because cloth is a familiar part of everyday life. She is interested in exploring how far fiber can be stretched and molded and retain the name “quilt.” Kris lives in the Twin Cities. Kris’ work is featured in the 2014 Fiber Art Almanac.
“Fiber in contemporary context not only calls back to its origins, but also leaps forward from its tactile nature with a digital overlay. This work will feel familiar to you, whether through ancient methods for coloring cloth or the digital pixel applied to an ageless warp and weft. We are all surrounded by fiber.” –KHS 2014
