In Our Nature: The Tapestries of Helena Hernmarck
In Our Nature: Tapestries of Helena Hernmarck, is an assemblage of nineteen large-scale tapestries by our era's legendary trompe-l'oeil weaver, Helena Hernmarck. Monumental works immerse the viewer in the best of nature: lush blooms, rich green forest scenes, and sunny poppy pastures. Hernmarck's work represents a lifetime of closely honed weaving technique which combines intensely sensitive attention to color with one-of-a-kind combination of textures creating layered, shaded effects. These tapestries are on loan from three major arts museums, several corporate and individual collectors, and from Helena’s own collection. Also part of the exhibit are eighteen “Nordic Forest” themed tapestries created by “Team Hernmarck,” a group of advanced weaving students of Hernmarck from Sweden and the U.S.
