Memorial Fiber Art | 6'W x18"L | Art Galleries in Door County | SOLD | Commissioned Art Work Available
This Art Gallery, Located in Door County, Wisconsin, offers bohemian wall tapestries and other pieces perfect for exclusive gifts, memorial pieces, and more.
The fine art of fiber wall sculptures & tapestries by Wendy Carpenter are handwoven in an impressionist art style through borderline abstract-literal interpretations. Carpenter's fiber art wall hangings capture the emotion and power of nature by abstracting the natural world.
Memorial Art work is healing, similar to a memorial service might be. It tells the story of someone's life uniquely, and it's incredibly compelling knowing the materials are from the loved one's clothing.
Ironically, COVID-19 provided the push I needed to respond to my need to merge fiber art and healing. And I am thrilled to now share my artistic pivot in that direction.
The Clearing Folk Art School commissioned me to create a memorial wall hanging in tribute to Mertha Fulkerson. Mertha had devoted her life to helping founder Jen Jensen run the Clearing and kept it going after his death. I re-purposed her handwoven fabric from the '40s through the '60s and rewove it to create a fiber wall sculpture to honor her hard work and efforts to save the Clearing.
