“In the 'Form' series, I explore drawing with the fabric. I begin with a sketch, translate that form onto the fabric, cut it, and then join it with thread into the background fabric. The result is multiple steps away from the initial hand drawing, but the processes compound, leaving additional traces of the hand. I like the imperfect symmetry, the evidence of touch in the line, pull, and stretch of the cloth, as well as the line of the drawn form.” — Stacey Beach

About the Artist

File 105946

Stacey Beach (b.1977) is a Californian artist who creates two-dimensional sewn textile works that explore form and composition as well as the material itself in its relation to feminine identity. Inspired by the anonymous histories of female textile artists, the decorative arts and American folk art, Beach’s work explores concepts of beauty and anti-beauty, high and low, form and void, the domestic and the feminine.
