Olivia Valentine has received The 2012 Brandford/Elliott Award for excellence in Fiber Art. She uses lace making to “explore the boundaries between interior and exterior space. Because lace is often used as an edging, she sees it as representing a mediating space between the private and the public.” The choice of black fibers feels to me as if she’s building shadows. Lurking in the shadows of architecture, craft and textiles.
