“Suzanne Tidwell is a fiber artist working primarily in the Seattle area. I create large-scale, site specific fiber installations of vibrant color that transform undesirable and underused public areas into places people want to frequent. The somber tones and rich vegetation of the Pacific Northwest influence my brash and untraditional work in fiber and demonstrate that the effect of experiencing bright color can be similar to that of a sunny day. My work has been described as Dr. Seuss meets Christo and challenges the belief that the sole purpose of knitting is to make garments or provide warmth. I regularly source my materials from thrift stores and frequently recycle yarn from one project to the next, carefully unwinding and reknitting yarn in subsequent installations, until it cannot be used anymore. My work is often temporary and encourages people to live in the moment, because you never know where an installation will turn up or when it will disappear”.
