fiber arts gallery

Kathy Strauss' fiber work is often indirectly informed by her work in the laboratory. Starting with organisms and images seen during the course of her work and reading, she abstracts and personalizes these, creating batik sculptures on layers of silk gauze. These pieces are done using tradition batik methods as well as direct dyeing techniques, and are suspended from wooden battens.
