Jeanne Bieri’s art practice begins with the simple act of hand sewing. This allows contemplation of the art making process and careful organization of the parts. As she assembles it piece by piece, the work grows in a way that closely relates to painting. Bieri received a grant from the State of Michigan in 2000 to study quilts and their patterns. She discovered that they often touch people on a personal level and encourage memories. Whether an army blanket or quilt, she delights to find a treasure that has a personal history that goes well beyond her and extends to the observer. Hide & Seek, Bieri’s current series of art quilts incorporating fabrics with history, encourages viewer interaction and reminiscence. She received a Kresge Fellowship for her fiber pieces in 2017.
