In nature nurture, Portland-based interdisciplinary fiber artist Amanda Triplett explores the emotional dynamics of humanity’s complex relationship to nature. Devastation and nourishment, control and chaos, wonder and fear; these are just a few of the ways that we as humans respond to the power of nature. Deconstructing and reassembling recycled textiles with needle and thread, Triplett considers the multitudinous aspects of nature and how we as humans love it, fight it, learn from it, cultivate it, destroy it, and seek ourselves in it.
The transformation of recycled textiles into biomorphic forms becomes a means of summoning Triplett’s own kinship with nature. The work invites the viewer to contemplate their own relationship to nature, and to consider the ways by which they can find connection to the natural world. Whether we are seeking wonder or facing our fears, Triplett’s work reminds us that we are all part of the complex tapestry of nature, and that our actions have a profound impact on the natural world around us.
