Abigail Doan – Fiber Forms

December 20th, 2008

I just wanted to quickly point you all to a friend and fabulous environmental artist (and writer) Abigail Doan.  Abigail lives in NY (and rural Italy) and makes intricate fiber forms that evoke the complex effect that humans have on the environment, and each other.  Actually, there’s a lot more to them than just that in my opinion.. They’re alluring little nodules, lumps, and strands that are both grotesque and invitingly fuzzy.
I have always been an admirer of her artistic sensibilities, methods, and convictions.  Though we’ve never met in person (we connected originally through NeoImages), we’ve been plotting to eventually collaborate.  Should that finally happen, the output of our experiment will definitely be posted here in one form or another.
