Sheila Hicks Lifelines
The ultimate textile hero, Sheila Hicks is a beloved maverick of American art. She has been working at the intersection of art, craft and architecture for more than 50 years
With works ranging from tapestry to sculptures, from architectural decoration to installations, Sheila Hicks is a truly legendary figure of textile and installation art. A Hicks piece may deploy traditional fibers like cotton, wool and silk alongside, for example, porcupine quills, feathers or steel fibers; equally unexpected is the often monumental scale of her works, which frequently respond to the architecture surrounding them.
