Textile art and design

Ryijy Residency Programme

Ryijy Residency Programme of Arlene Tucker and Daniel Malpica 
Stoa Gallery, Helsinki

“In her work, she expresses her ideas through textile techniques, materials, and concepts.
Literal arts are often her source of inspiration. She contemplates the meaning of the significance and nothingness, visible and invisible, of words and pictures. The words change into forms, materials, and colors through her creative process. Costume, stage design, and wearable art is a part of her artistic production. She transforms and expresses the concept through the language of the wearable. Her idea of community art is the connection. She contemplates how the creative process connects people with art, single with collective, inward with expression, private with a public, description with non-description.”
