Wen Redmond is a mixed-media fiber artist who creates the entire structure of her one-of-a-kind pieces. Her latest work features digital photography, which involves manipulating and printing her original images on specially prepared fabrics or other substrates. Her work includes painting, dyeing, stamping, screen-printing, monoprinting, stitching, and other means of surface design.
Wen Redmond finds expression by printing directly on fabrics and other surfaces. She has created several innovative techniques. Her digital fiber works are manipulated photographs printed on treated fabrics, creating unusual, textural stitched constructions. Her silk organza collages employ an added dimension of light, which flows through the layered transparent silk, making a variety of patterns from different angles. Her holographic pieces have a 3-D effect created by layering a duplicate photo under the main image. Each work is unique and created individually.
Redmond has worked with fabrics her entire life, and she graduated from college with an excellent working knowledge of this medium. She has also received training from some of the country's most innovative fiber artists. Redmond continues to explore her chosen medium of fabric to see what it can do, and to stretch its possibilities as art medium.
