Joseph Beuys

Suggested by Colin as being an artist to look at. Most of Joseph Beuys work doesn’t really resonate with me but I had a look at specifically felt work this time , as I will likely use felt in my imaginary tool project.

The article associated with the above image and link states that Joseph Beuys was quoted as talking about felt as a warm sculpture and also looking at the link between everyday objects and art. Colin also mentioned that some of Joseph Beuys work was associated with healing and I can certainly feel the link between felt and healing and care. It’s part of the reason I use textiles – because of their association with care, protection, comfort and warmth.
