Art in Texture
About The Artist
Robin Przybysz • Las Cruces, NM
Fiber & Textiles • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
I am a Contemporary Craft Artist. My work stems from a personal narrative and engages conversation about the feminine: the experiences of womanhood and transformation embodied by the female form. My studio practice consists of wrapping, coiling, and stitching my materials into a continuous line contour of sculptural forms. My development of transforming the medium is a meditative, ceremonial, and flowing state of motion.

Tell us how your work is made.
My studio practice consists of twisting, stitching, wrapping, coiling, drilling, cutting, chiseling, and burning. These are skills I perform while crafting my sculptural bodies of art. The natural, fibrous materials I choose such as cotton, linen, jute, wood, and paper offer me a sensual, sensorial feel in my hands that become an extension of the gestures of my body. The designs I create in my artworks whether burned, stitched, drawn, coiled or constructed into three dimensional sculptures become a symbolic language for me. My symbols become unconscious patterns of movement and communication.
