Barbara WisoffSpringfield NJ USA
My artwork references personal experiences, cultural themes, anatomy, and nature. I love making decisions about referential content, composition, color, texture, line, shape, and light before and during the slow processes of hand stitching, sketching, knitting, crocheting, braiding, hand knotted beading, and hand weaving. These processes and my collections of varied materials are great resources for me. The artwork of Louise Bourgeois, Eva Hesse, Magdalena Abakanowicz, and many other artists, as well as materials, processes, and utility inspire me.
