Shifting Shadows

Irene LaVon Walker's avatar Irene LaVon Walker

Using the traditional methods of weaving and felting, combined with modern materials, I produce cloth to create sculptural garments and environments. These garments appear to be a distant reminder of a world that is not our own, but still feels familiar, like the hazy recollections of our dreams or the ever shifting shadows of memory. The created environments mirror elements found in nature yet are blurred and reimagined to become new and strange formations. Drawing inspiration from nature, historical clothing, and the space between fantasy and reality, I strive to create a sense of discovery and wonder that transports the viewer to a different time, place and world.
