Featured Work

Diedrick Brackens: ark of bulrushes

A portrait of contemporary artist Diedrick Brackens as he weaves together expansive narratives inspired by Myths, Bible stories and poetry. In the same way the Freedom Quilts held secret messages that helped runaway slaves navigate their way to freedom –– his weavings explore the way textiles have been used to communicate and signal within certain communities, both in overt ways and through a secret language. His weavings show figures transcendent, expressing joy and in communion with nature. Brackens incorporates weaving as a means to bring to life the fantastical stories he’s drawn to and rework them to create new narratives.
