A friend of mine recently told me about her favorite artist, Magdalena Abakanowicz. She wanted me to look at her art because she knew I was interested in larger figures. Being a weaver, I have worked with natural fibers for many years. My friend thought the combination of the figures and natural materials would spark my interest in Magdalena. I find her work extraodinary. I'm getting ready to do an artist profile on her but I wanted to post this video below to introduce her to the other students. I think you will be moved by her work.
