As a studio artist of Loop of the Loom since 2011, Juliet Martin opened a new door for textile arts.
Juliet Martin mixes tradition with experimentation in funny and ironic handwoven sculptural memoirs. She promotes intimacy with the audience by speaking with satire and humor about personal experiences. Her raw truths confront the viewer. In her work, she applies the Japanese philosophy of SAORI. With its Zen mindset, SAORI encourages free form work—no patterns, no rules, no mistakes. Every sculpture is an improvisation in awkward beauty: clumpy fabric, fighting colors, rough and smooth textures, ragged edges. By approaching weaving as both craft and fine art, she shows that questioning the intention can bring you solutions that are unique to the medium.
