Just curious, what complex weavers do you admire and why?
A few of my favorites;
> Jhane Barnes...with her early use of fractals to inspire her menswear collections, and then her use of color integrated into structure. (Not to mention her finishing details!)
> Irvin Trujillo...just 2 shafts and an explosion of complexity in his designs— particularly in his personal work. To me, watching an expert tapestry weaver is like watching really good chess players—they have mapped out their moves in their mind so far ahead of the actual game, and yet, they can shift strategy quickly in response to what they are seeing develop. (And this is so different for many of us who spend more time on the computer with our weaving software than we do at the loom!)
I am looking to expand my horizons, so tell me who you admire and why...
