A pioneer in the fibber arts, Sheila Hicks’ body of work spans five decades and encompasses sculptures, installations, unconventional tapestry, and small framed works. Her creations are distinguished by her mastery of the chosen media and her sensitivity to texture and color. Since the beginning of her career, she has spent a lot of time in Central and South America where she learned and incorporated some of the native weaving techniques into her creations. Her aim is to give another status to textile, a material that is usually considered either functional or decorative. Hicks’ works traverses the boundaries between art, design, craft, and architecture.
