Found around the web

I have recently become more and more interested in textile and fibre art.  Good old Google searches lead me to the Textile artist’s website where I found an interview with Robert Forman here.

I was immediately drawn to this artist’s work.

You can read the whole interview with this fascinating artist for yourself and go to his website to view more of his extraordinary work.

I was struck by his reply to the question as to how he regards his work and where he thinks it fits in with contemporary art.  This was his reply:

I agree with the artist Eva Hesse statement:


I feel so strongly that the only art is the art of the artist, personally. My interest is in solely finding my own way. I don’t mind being miles from everybody else.


I am interested in art that comes from a deeply personal place. Where my work fits within the sphere of contemporary art is not my call.


For me it was a deeply thought-provoking answer.
