Textile Artist Sallie Tyszko weaves strong, powerful tapestries, full of colours and textures on big floor looms.
Sinuous lines thread across landscapes. Luminous mohair undulates through the waves of seascapes. The colour of a sea at dawn, the veins of a leaf, a shade, and a shape inspire, and the legends give a mermaid, myths and mystery.
The weft is anything weaveable; stones, rocks of mica, mohair, silk, wool, hand-dyed, hand-spun.
The warp for the transparent backgrounds is 50lb breaking strain fishing line. The weft is everything possible to weave. Stones, each one a beauty, from a special place. Each driftwood frame meticulously constructed. Nothing is impossible.
