Textile collage artist to showcase at Denver's gallery
Jul '13
Jean Herman combines expert textile collage artistry with an inspired search for meaning by studying people and their landscapes to portray various traditions and belief systems. Denver-area residents can view her textile collage art collection from July 19 through August 10 at aBuzz Gallery, located at 3340 Walnut Street in Denver’s RiNo Art District.

ABuzz is RiNo’s newest gallery, now open for First Fridays and Third Fridays. Herman, who has developed her own unique style of fiber art that incorporates drawing, painting and stitching on fabric, chose aBuzz because it is opening the Denver market to upcoming artists who use innovative mediums.

While conducting a tour of her work, Herman will discuss her creative voice, her technique and her development of a piece of artwork, from first idea to final product.

In her pieces, Herman incorporates various media and techniques, including textile art, stitching, drawing, painting, monotypes and collage, to capture ideas, visions and concepts. Herman explains that, “I use fabric, texture, stitching, patterns and color to explore the human form that is always in search of beauty and meaning.”

In her creative process, Herman uses an air pen to draw figures spontaneously on fabric, which allows her to respond to each figure uniquely. Once pleased with the drawing, she then begins to build a textile collage that enhances the story of the figures.

Building appreciation for how the eternal “search for meaning” might be answered, Herman aims to create an emotional response to her art and open viewers’ eyes to possibilities.
