Nadia Kunz
A statement from the artist:

"Conversation" - Nadia Kunz

"Conversation" - Nadia Kunz

"I am a bit of a dumpster diver. I create articles from things other people may consider trash. For example, I use junk mail and magazine pages to make collages and crochet sweaters from recycled yarn. My love of fiber also expresses itself in the use of embroidery on top of inkjet prints of my collages. Having to make do with the material at hand challenges me and stimulates my imagination, and when I succeed to transform mundane materials into a piece that expresses my love for color and form, I derive a lot of joy."
