Knitspiration: Fiber Artist & Printmaker Hanna Haworth
Posted July 26, 2012on:
I just discovered the fabulous work of Hanna Haworth.
Her use of the fair isle technique is clever and refreshingly applied. It’s all very “knitterly” to me (think painterly, from way back when you took that art history class).
I’m not always into a narrative, but I adore the piece of prose that is included with the installation “The Hunt:”
One day she did not return from her fishing and so she was searched for, he reached her spot but it was deserted. And so he began looking for her tracks – they led directly away into the vast interior. It began to get dark as he ventured inland more and more. As night fell, he became sure that her feet were bare. They became smaller and smaller the further he tracked her. As he continued, one of her feet became wolf while the other remained human. As she was like that, he turned back.
