The following information was provided by Storefront Art Projects:
Adrienne Sloane is a contemporary fiber artist with a political focus. She finds the 3-D image to go with the metaphor through her deep exploration of sculptural knit structures.
Her work has often addressed timely but universal issues while remaining mindful of the rich historical context of her medium. Broadening her artistic toolbox, Sloane’s current work incorporates fiber in mixed media work.
In PeaceWork, Adrienne uses found puzzles and plastic soldiers, to create a limited edition chessboard in a custom tin box, like an old board game. It’s called Culture Wars and she makes them to order.
She has reconstructed jigsaw pieces into an artwork called Color Line with a blood red knit trail running through white to black pieces. Missing Pieces is a puzzle piece pile up with red names of Black murder victims on top of a crooked puzzle of the Constitution. Her Mona Lisa and bucolic landscapes in puzzle pieces framed with knitting round out this summer show.
