I am a Canadian textile artist in Calgary, Alberta. As textile artists, we connect and are connected to communities larger than our Selves, or our immediate environs. We encapsulate culture, technique, history and innovation every time we touch cloth.
arlee barr uses ecoprints, natural dyes and hand stitch to bridge early world textile practices and contemporary form. As each imprint of leaf, dye bath and stitch is added, the marking of time and labour create both temporal and chronological narratives. The intrinsic nature of indigenous plant material and personal variations in hand-work direct the story, but leave much open to interpretation.
