Industry City-based textile artist Rebecca Atwood’s work is always evolving. What remains consistent is her commitment to following intuition and inspiration wherever it leads. “I find inspiration everywhere: a vintage scarf, the shadows on a sidewalk, an idea in my sketchbook, or even painting directly onto fabric with dye. My studio practice allows me the space to create and see what develops.” This open-ended exploration comes through in the results: remarkable textiles, largely made from natural dyes, in which color, pattern, and form take on a life of their own. Head over to the Burkelman Blog to see her process firsthand.
