Fabia Delise, the recipient of the Art´n Fiber® residency fellowship 2022
The motivation of the selection committee
" Fabia Delise is a technically proficient textile artist with an independent approach to a specific classic patchwork technique called “English Paper Piecing”. She is not bound to the traditional technique but anchored in it which makes her artwork contemporary, exploratory, innovative, and aesthetically appealing. In her application for the residency Art ‘n Fiber® she also describes curiosity and interest in the residency as well as its surroundings of Storvreta and Uppsala. The examples given by her about the purpose of her stay awoke our interest and curiosity."
