shiela hicks

Sheila Hicks is an American fiber artist who presents textile art as an experience situated between sculpture and performance. Extrodinarily talented with bold and bright textile scupltures and inspirational weavings. She is an artist that was engaged in bold colour, and her pieces are full off spirit and passion. Her works are in the permanent collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Centre Pompidou in Paris to name a few.

I recently have aquired her book Shiela Hicks: 50 years which is filled with wonderful images of her works over the last 50 years. I would love to get my hands on the book Shiela Hicks: Weaving as a Metaphor. The designer of this book Irma Boom, won the gold medal for “Most Beautiful Book in the World” prize at the Leipzig Book Fair for this book. Unfortunately its now out of print and extremely hard to find.
