Description

Cristina Grajales Gallery

Turkish artist Betil Dagdelen grew up in a culture steeped in fabric arts and in a family of textile collectors. She developed her unique approach to weaving by apprenticing with indigenous weavers in New Mexico, Peru, and Turkey. Her work mixes traditional weaving technologies with an improvisational approach to patterning and boldly steps away from the loom to weave into and around sculpted forms. Dagdelen began her career as a set designer in fashion and film. She divides her time between New York City and Abiquiu, New Mexico.
