  4. Your site is really interesting and can discover a wide variety of artistic expression with the textile Congratulations to the Curators.
    I am a French artist and I work in a region where the finest French silk textiles were made, with weaving on Jacquard looms.
    I sometimes work from these textiles but I also realize many objects, sculptures with traditional embroidery that presented the great French painting. I invite you to look at my site that shows these hybrid objects, with volumes in wood and volumes made with these ancient textiles with flamboyant colors. I also work on more minimalist works in which texts are embroidered.. I submit my artist website.
    Best regards
