After she retired, Kiki Dembrow discovered tapestry and the lively community of weavers at the Damascus Fiber Arts School. Kiki had always harbored a desire to create visual images. She tried painting, stained glass and mosaics, but tapestry is what caught and kept her.
Weaving is the means by which Kiki explores the interplay of ideas, images, and colors that resonate for her. The constraints of warp and weft present challenges, choices to balance. She asks herself, “How will I translate these ideas, images and colors into the language of weaving?” The process of finding resolution, of making the intangible tangible, is stimulating as well as frustrating, and pushes her to learn and grow.
This gallery shows a few of her tapestries.
