Spongy looking scuptures dominate the room as you first enter the Brattleboro Museum in Brattleboro, Vermont. Suspended in mid-air these playful sculptures by Stephanie Metz are a wonder to behold. These objects even state that you can touch and feel them to receive the full weight of the sculptures, which is quite unusual for art in general. Metz primarily works in the medium of fabric; wool. She lives and works in San Jose California with her husband and two sons. She works at her studio at the Alameda ArtWorks and is also known as a vibrant public speaker in both online and live situations. These touchable felt sculptures have a sense of weightlessness and invite the mind and tactile feeling to explore the different shapes, twisting and turning.
Part of the Felt Experience Exhibition at the museum, Metz was the star of the show. Playful titles such as "Nubbins" and "Veiny Bulb" also give the viewer a sense of fun when interacting closely with these wonders. In a museum filled with such treasures Stephanie's work stood out to Art Collector World. This delicate interplay between fabric and form are a statement to the creator's ability to capture the essence of fine art sculpture. Each piece in their own rights contain subtle variations that guide the audience to experience the adventurous mind that is Stephanie Metz.
