Liz Robb Artist Bio:

Liz Robb’s art practice focuses on soft sculpture. Based in San Francisco, she works sculpturally to create textured surfaces & forms with natural materials such as wool, cotton, jute, & indigo. She completed her BFA in Fashion Design at the University of Cincinnati and her MFA in Fibers at the Savannah College of Art & Design. Robb has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally, and has most recently completed a residency at the Icelandic Textile Center in Blönduós, Iceland. "Avant-garde art aficionados of a certain (i.e., advanced) age will remember when the soft sculpture of Claes Oldenburg was the newest outrage against the cultural norm of traditional art materials. A decade later, women’s craft techniques and feminist criticism invaded male bastions of culture. Nowadays, sewn sculpture is no longer seen as a challenge to aesthetic gravitas or paternalistic authority, so Liz Robb’s new work in fiber, aligned with a postminimalist interest in process, can be rightly appreciated on its own terms." -Recommendation by DeWitt Cheng
