The sculptural fiber wall hangings of Mary Little will be on view in an exhibition at the Craft in America Center from April 21 through June 2, 2018. This group of meditative works stem from Little’s passion for the magical and metaphorical qualities of cloth. For this exhibition, Little will additionally be making a site-specific, three-dimensional fiber form suspended in the Center window that will complement the patterns and inspiration of her wall pieces.
Little evokes the contrasts of land to abstract the terrain and create line and pattern via shadow and light. She recently began investigating fiber spaces in her practice as an extension of the contemplative and poetic qualities she strives to achieve throughout her work. With her remarkable ability to maintain a balance between the delicate and striking, Little’s art flows between big emotions and subtlety. Check out her talk on "Intent and Serendipity" in the Talks at Google series here.
