Statement: Inspired by the rich history of quilt-making and fiber art, Jan Brandt hand-stitches disparate textiles such as donated clothing, pompoms, and muslin into three dimensional hybrid assemblages. An organic process drives this intricate work referencing growth and accumulation. The assemblages may read as biological experiments or fantastical landscapes while referencing feminine artistic techniques and traditions.
