Gifts of Art presents Sewn Morphology: Embroidered Sculpture
Ann Arbor based artist and designer Kirsten Lund received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and works in a variety of media including fiber, painting and printmaking. In this recent series, abstract sewn and crocheted forms are covered in embroidered, beaded and hand-printed imagery. Inspired by patterns in nature, whether anatomical, microscopic or aerial, the elements are related in form and reference point. Rooted in the seductive physicality of traditional craft processes and created with conceptual frameworks, the finished objects exist at the junction of art and craft. Lund has exhibited throughout the country and locally at the Ann Arbor Art Center.
