Fran Solar is a contemporary BC artist who combines traditional textile techniques with unconventional materials,to create unique woven sculpture, both free standing & wall mounted.
In the mid-1990's Fran began to experiment with basketry as another textile art form, but after taking workshops at Basket Focus conferences, she began combining metals with textile techniques such as loom weaving, basketry & quilting. Her materials today include copper,brass,stainless steel sheet & wire,as well as interesting bits & pieces of hardware and industrial surplus.She now has more fun improvising arrangements of shapes,textures,materials, & colours, than she did as a traditional fiber artist, & is intrigued with using these 'masculine ' materials to create art with a feminine/domestic dynamic.
