Barbara Schulman Textiles
About The Artist
Barbara Schulman • Bethlehem, PA
Mixed Media • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
The focus of my life has been that of creating textile objects, which is the way I understand, escape from, comment on, and play with the complexities of life. I work with original textiles drawn from my extensive background in weaving, fabric dyeing and patterning, painting, and stitching, which I then spontaneously cut and reassemble until a transformation to the realm of memories, dreams, fantasies or fears appears. Deconstructing of former quilts into new ones is a favorite practice.
