The Craft in America Center is pleased to present a solo exhibition of knitted metal sea creatures by pioneering artist Arline Fisch. For this installation, Fisch’s work will transform the Center into an oceanic aquarium with vibrant wire jellyfish floating through the space and a coral reef filling the window. The title of the exhibition refers to a group of jellyfish, i.e. a bloom. Fisch will go down in history as the first person to use metallic wire with the methods of textiles. At a time when few, if no other women were working with metals in the art world, Fisch revolutionized the material. She transcended the rigidity of wire by shaping it into organic, rounded forms. With Aquatic Bloom, Fisch is calling attention to the sheer majesty and beauty of our oceans and what we need to desperately protect.
