“Fiber Art”

“Fiber Art”

Project Description

Artist: Karen Cunagin

The Designing Architectʼs vision for honoring the agricultural heritage of our community in the Childrenʼs Place inspired me to use vibrant color and realistic texture in creating these whimsical, giant flora to animate our new library.  And as I love childrenʼs books, the fruit concepts for this project were happily influenced by “Eating the Alphabet”, a board book by painter and collagist Lois Ehlert.  Their resulting ripe bounty is meant to appeal to young and old alike.  The excellent upholstery skills of Roberto Ramirez were invaluable in their construction. Any activity under the canopy of springy sunflower petals should bring delight as readers and listeners both find fresh perspective in their surroundings as well as their books.  This bloom represents the ever-new opportunity for each of us to blossom in our wholesome efforts to mature ourselves and enrich our community. Iʼm blessed and grateful to artfully contribute in that pursuit.
