Fabric Collage - Laura Breitman

Collage in Fabric and Paper - Reviews Laura Breitman

"At first you're not sure if it's a painting or a photograph. When you look closely, you find it's a collage. It rewards the viewer with a wonderful hand crafted surface."
-- Elizabeth Smith, Chief Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.

"Using fabric like paint, Breitman makes intricate, astonishingly realistic images...[She] positions thousands of bits of cloth from slivers to two-inch squares onto her canvas, like overlapping brushstrokes. To get variegated colors and graduated shades of light and dark just right, she often bleaches, dyes or block prints onto the fabric."
-- Ann Wilson Lloyd, Smithsonian Magazine
