Log-in to Favorite

Rhian Swierat grew up in the Hudson Valley and is now based in Brooklyn, NY. She graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2002 with a BFA in graphic design. Her work is is derived from the historical precedent of a sampler, using stitches to record the forms, patterns and textures of her experiences of different places. This recording of memories is a tactile sense of space, not a photographic documentation. All the forms, patterns, textures and colors are her impressions and understandings from a specific time and place. For more information visit her website
