Painting by Spinning: Three Artists Using Textiles

Incorporating the organic textures of textiles can sometimes bring to the work the historical context of clothing in which fibers have played a role in our lives. There are various types of materials such as hemp, cotton, and wool, and each material has its own story, for example, silk is connected to social issues such as the beginning of the Silk Road in ancient times, and in modern times, women played a leading role in the spinning mills in Hong Kong.

On the other hand, if I were to focus on the material appeal of the work, it would be in terms of texture. After more than a hundred years of mass production of clothing due to industrial progress, embroidery and handlooms are becoming more and more popular as a reaction to this trend, and are also attracting attention in art. In this article, I will introduce three artists who apply textiles to art.
