About

Ann Haessel creates intuitively abstract textile art, integrating layers of thought and emotion. Her art reflects both her respect for heritage crafts and interest in experimenting with various mediums and techniques.

Ann’s complex abstractions blur boundaries between fibre art, painting and mixed media. Starting with sheer fabrics she creates artwork that evolves over time. Free form stitching, knitting, sewing, the addition of materials like yarns, cotton and other embellishments, provide depth and texture to her powerful compositions. The use of non-traditional craft materials like paint stripper to cause surface breakdown, give pieces an ephemeral atmosphere.

Threads that Bind embraces a spirit of open, undefined creativity that allows for reflection, transformation, release and healing. Each piece tells a story of imagination and emotion through its dynamic colouration, fabric/textile layering, and the incorporation of found objects. It is a journey of possibilities to explore, create and appreciate.
