Artist list

Michael Brennand
UK-based fiber artist Michael Brennand-Wood was inspired by 1950s science fiction movie posters for his new installation, Vase Attacks. Bouquets of machine embroidered flowers and cross-culturally based designs form the vases that explode from the wall more with exuberance than violence. The patterns of color, form and dimension are very decorative but also thought provoking such as where fighter bomber butterflies swarm around a mushroom cloud of plastic toy army men. Combining fiber, plastic, metal, and wood Brennand-Wood pushes the boundaries of contemporary fiber art.
