Fine Art Textiles by Marilyn Henrion: Amazing & Awesome

Celebrating Textiles as a Medium for Urbane, Sophisticated Art

Today's feature: Fine Art Textiles & More by Artist Marilyn Henrion

Marilyn Henrion's hand-stitched constructions transform geometric elements into abstract, metaphorical images with strong graphic impact. With frequent references to literature, she uses color, line, and form much as a poet employs words to convey an emotion or idea.

As in poetry, the images are meant to resonate, being both themselves and something they may suggest to the viewer.

With sixteen solo exhibitions to her credit, and with works in museum, corporate and private collections worldwide, Marilyn Henrion’s reputation as one of the foremost contemporary, fiber artists is undisputed.

Recently, Henrion has added digital photography to her repertoire with Metropolis…...a series of photographic images based on the same geometric urban environment that inspires the artist’s textile works.

The artist's papers and sketchbooks are included in the Smithsonian Institution’s Archives of American Art in Washington, DC. Among her many honors is a Fellowship from The New York Foundation for the Arts, awarded in 2002.
