“Intangible, A Fiber Fairytale” is an immersive fiber art tour de force happening right now at the Sweet Tooth Hotel in Dallas. Whatever’s on your agenda between today and December 31, you would be remiss if you didn’t add this to your must-see list. Read on for info on just a few of these brilliant artists and their contributions to the show.
Born in Los Angeles, London Kaye made a name for herself creating yarn street art in and around her Brooklyn, New York, community, eventually collaborating with major brands like Starbucks, Miller Lite, and Disney. Using 3D printing technology she created a patented crochet hook and developed her own brand of yarn. Kaye’s entry in the event, New York City, creates a pink parallel universe evoking the spirit of the city in which she lives, all created using yarn.
Hailing from Dallas, Alli Koch is a muralist and author who’s not afraid to put her knitting needles to work. Her section of the show space is called “Mystery” and is decorated in her signature dark florals, featuring mural, fiber art, and organic elements.
Based in San Francisco, Twinkie Chan is known for her food-themed crochet art and designs as well as her writing and Creativebug classes. Her entry is entitled “Sucre Fleuf!” and, in the words of the artist, depicts “an imaginary bakery in the middle of a secret garden.” Chan says she was inspired by old-world boulangeries and patisseries as well as modern Asian dessert art. The installation combines her love for yarn, sweets, Wes Anderson movies, and ’80s cartoons.”
