About the Juror

Headshot of Juror Eszter BornemiszaEszter Bornemisza is a mixed media fiber artist living in Budapest, Hungary. She trained as a mathematician, earned a PhD in mathematical statistics, and worked in the field as a researcher for twenty years.

Having experience creating garments, she started making art quilts in the mid-1990’s. She has been a full time studio artist since 1999 creating quilts, large scale transparent fibre works, 3D objects, and installations mainly from the ubiquitous material of waste newspaper and vintage cloth. Her work is based on experimentation and research. The basic process of creation is machine stitching with additional elements of print, dye, and paint.

Bornemisza’s work has been widely exhibited in both juried and solo exhibitions throughout Europe, America, Australia, China, and Japan, many of which have been awarded notable prizes.
