About

"Peachy Keen" is a 22 x 25 x 6 inch fiber sculpture made of handwoven wool, cotton, and nuno felting with a warm palette of peach, orange, and brown. A part of Vander Sluis' "Torso" series, this piece hangs on a wooden rod and is designed to be seen from both sides. Label with artist's signature is on the inside. In her "Torso" series, Vander Sluis uses improvisational weaving and knitting to create fiber figures. The torso form symbolizes the artist's heart and energetic center. With these sculptures, the artist talks about the nature of personal power and resilience. 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.
