FSU Art Associate Professor Denise Bookwalter and collaborator Lee Running have released a catalogue from Sheathing: Cloth as Shelter.
Sheathing is a collaborative installation developed with residencies at Penland School of Crafts, Small Craft Advisory Press, and Constellation Studios exploring the materials of textiles, handwork, and embellishment. Using the 60 X 80 inch size of a queen bed as a measure, Bookwalter and Running created a series of large format woodblock prints on handmade paper, and built a bedroom sized printed canvas and dyed silk tent. Viewers were invited to wear bed jackets and move through images printed, dyed and stitched onto multiple materials into a more and more intimate space.
A full preview of the catalogue is available online at Blurb, where you may also purchase a physical copy.
