Philip Sarsany, Fiber Artist - Artist's Statement


Philip Sarsany – CSCC – Aspiring Art Historian

Fiber Artist

See more of this artist’s work at his website:

Working with fibers is an amazing way to not only produce pieces of art, but also to give your body and mind a touch of relax. This labor can let materials grow from a “seed” to a beautiful representation of feelings and thoughts.

With the use of different textiles, I ask my inner being to talk to others about what I can make to transform materials in a very personal way. This kind of work is a continuous experimentation with fibers and techniques which leads me to discover skills to show the world another kind of art.

Special thanks to my Mentor in the pursuing of my bachelor’s degree in Art History, Dr. Janice Glowski from Otterbein University, Westerville, OH.

The pieces featured in this exhibition include diverse techniques such as crochet, knitting, and weaving to transform yarn and other fibers; also collage, and quilling to produce artwork with papers while “playing” with colors and textures.

I have taken as inspiration for some of my pieces displayed here, the Project “Crochet Coral Reef: Toxic Seas” exhibited by The Institute for Figuring in New York in 2017
