Aryana B. Londir
"It is natural for me to create art quilts to integrate my love for line, color and composition, which allows me to compose in the larger scale I crave. I love the sensuous feel of fabric, the ease in which it is manipulated, and its ability to take color in dye and paint. "
Aryana Londir's work centers on balance, harmony and the integration of contradiction and contrast. Londir features traditional fiber materials with contemporary techniques, creating a dynamic which showcases each to its fullest potential. The artist is intrigued with Line as a design element above and beyond other elements, and with Color as a close second.
Londir individually designs, constructs and finishes each piece, integrating hand-dyed fabrics with commercially dyed materials. All of her work is machine-pieced and machine-quilted. Each piece consists of three layers: the quilt top, cotton batting and cotton backing.
Aryana Londir studied textile design, fashion styling, color, and sewing construction techniques with many acclaimed teachers. The artist developed her personal style after many years of studio practice in other artistic disciplines, always returning to her first love of textiles.
