This fiber painting, created on an upcycled ottoman cover, displays a feminine tree of life, rooted in many colors and textures.
Reassigning the fibers as a medium that functions like paint, Balder manipulates the material with a paintbrush and painter’s medium. The artist then responds to the fibers’ contours with graphite, and emphasizes their color with acrylic paint. This response brings her own hand into the work and accentuates the beauty within the fibers.
