About

Clothing Relic 1" is a fiber work of soft greys, browns, and ivory. Handknit of wool and chenille yarns and silk sari ribbon, it is mounted on a wood panel with overall dimensions of 30 x 24 x 1.5. This fiber creation is graceful and flowing in form. In her “Relic” series, Vander Sluis creates quasi-relics made to appear as fragments of ancient garments. This clothing has been imbued with positive power. Sylvia Vander Sluis is a Boston-based, mixed–media artist. She synthesizes many different materials and techniques in collages of rich color and texture. Her work has been shown throughout the Northeast.
