Exhibition Announcement – Eszter Bornemisza

Exhibitions, News

Multi-layered surfaces of real and imaginary maps create a rich urban narrative in a new exhibition by Hungarian-based fibre artist Eszter Bornemisza, opening at Newcastle’s Timeless Textiles Gallery in January.

Mathematically trained, Bornemisza has been practicing as a fibre artist since the mid-1990s. She brings a unique spatial perspective to her works with recycled paper, textiles and other found soft materials.

The basic process of her creation is machine stitching, with additional elements of printing dyeing and painting. After having made art quilts for more than ten years, her interest has turned to creating transparent wall-hangings, objects and installations using ripped, overprinted newspaper.
