Médium

recycled knit fabric w/canvas, over wood stretcher

This piece is constructed using recycled fabric from clothing found at thrift shops. There is play and tension in the fabric as the work shifts in the process of its creation. The title of this series, Tectonic, refers to the geological plates of the earth that slide and collide creating continents, mountain ranges and ocean beds.

Lindy Fyfe, an artist born and raised in Montréal, is currently based in Toronto. She completed her visual arts education at Toronto School of Art in 2003. Once a professional calligrapher, she now maintains an active studio practice concentrating on painting, fabric construction, drawing and collage.

In 2010 she was given a major solo show at The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, a survey presenting her full range of media. Recently her work was featured in two Ontario exhibitions—World of Threads, Oakville and Fibreworks 2014, Cambridge Galleries.

“When I first began to experiment with textiles, my intention was to create a more complex surface to paint on. However, I found the intersection of seams and play of movement of patterns suggested alternatives that directed me toward other possibilities. My fabric works and paintings mutually explore movement and colour as formal elements of abstraction.”
