2023 "Urban/Rural Conversation" Artist: Marti Lameti


May 26, 2023

Meet and greet the artists Marti.jpg

"I paint with fibers. The tactile, visual and olfactory stimulation of working with textiles, lends itself well to the inspiration I find in nature. Working in wools, silks and other fibers, as well as found objects, I am able to create art in a sustainable way, using recycled fabrics whenever possible. I remember learning to cross stitch and knit, mend and sew probably before I could even read. After I received my BFA, I began exploring how I could translate what I had learned (as a painting, drawing and art history major) into cloth. My current focus has been on showcasing the esthetics of devastation (natural as well as man-made) and the Japanese tradition of forest bathing."
