Texture Creates Shapes

What a treat to have in Dallas two museums on Flora Street, the Dallas Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center, increasingly complimenting and impacting each other. Both grow as a result. What an unexpected surprise to have two exhibitions to explore how textiles create shapes. The Dior exhibition of the DMA shows the architecture and evolution of dresses through the evolution of designers and decades. As you slide through, you will see images of designers’ work seen at the DMA, exploring materials that are tightly tailored or loosely flowing. Artist Sheila Hicks’ work is an exploration of fibers, texture, and shapes. Her inspiration for her art might even come from the feel of texture in her hand. Just as fashion designers do, she explores century-old techniques and natural fibers, and recent synthetic fibers, and technology with much different effects. I recommend if you have not seen either exhibit yet, go to the Sheila Hicks exhibition at the Nasher Museum first. You will leave with a whole new understanding of textiles, textures, drape, form, shape, and the broad and delicate strokes of design and construction. *Texture Creates Shapes
