Hilde Morin



Artist Information for Hilde Morin

Drama and flow is what I like to represent in my fiber work. I find inspiration in both, natural and in architectural scenes, having a particular interest in weathered structures and formations. I enjoy extremes, neutral and vivid colors, clean and cluttered lines, chaotic and planned compositions.

In my natural scenes I represent reality by simplifying or suggesting it through either abstract or primitive designs and through the use of curved piecing techniques. In my cities and villages I strive to portray the energy of the place through the use strong compositions.

My approach includes the creation of a first layer of improvised pieced fabric with the addition of a second layer of texture through extensive thread work and surface design. My work is influenced by travels, nature walks and by my multi-cultural background.
