Description

A visual artist based in Bogotá, Colombia, Olga de Amaral (b. 1932) is one of the most recognized names in craft and Latin American art. Drawing on techniques like plaiting and wrapping and materials such as horsehair and gold leaf, Amaral’s transformative woven sculptures result from a lifetime of experimentation.
Olga de Amaral: To Weave a Rock traces Amaral’s career over five decades, features more than forty key pieces of work, and examines the artist’s oeuvre through the lens of contemporary and fiber art. This publication celebrates an artist who for decades has gracefully produced across traditional divides: fine art and craft, local and universal, ethereal and material.

Under these unusual circumstances, with exhibitions, galleries and our favourite book shops closed – and whilst we are all recommended to maintain social distancing – we think our beautiful art publications could be the perfect way to get through this uncertain period.
