"Warren Seelig" by Philip Beesley

"Warren Seelig's work has developed during the past three decades from loom-woven fabrics into increasingly free and expansive sculptural constructions. There are two large groups of new work at The Museum for Textiles. Many independent figures float in one group, taut membranes held by skeletal structures, catching and holding light. The other group is a series of sculptural fragments supported by a broad plaster shell. On that surface is cast a delicate skein of shadows behind floating metalwork. Through both groups of work runs the structure of weaving, a play of warp and weft in myriad cycles of tensing and compressing."
