Knit Graffiti

Artist in Residency: Suzanne Tidwell

Aug 10-16, 2015

Suzanne Tidwell

This August, Suzanne Tidwell will bring the art of Knit Graffiti to Paws Up. Join her for a campfire knit-in or at Kids Corps of Discovery for fun crafting sessions. You can also do some Knit Graffiti yourself by helping Suzanne install knitted masterpieces on the majestic pines throughout the property.

Suzanne Tidwell is a fiber artist working primarily in the Seattle area. She creates large-scale, site-specific fiber installations of vibrant color that transform undesirable and underused public areas into places people want to frequent. The somber tones and rich vegetation of the Pacific Northwest influence her brash and nontraditional work, which demonstrates that the effect of experiencing bright color can be similar to that of a sunny day. Her work has been described as Dr. Seuss meets Christo and challenges the belief that the sole purpose of knitting is to make garments or to provide warmth. Suzanne regularly sources materials from thrift stores and frequently recycles yarn from one project to the next, carefully unwinding and reknitting yarn in subsequent installations, until it cannot be used anymore. Her work is often temporary and encourages people to live in the moment, because you never know where an installation will turn up or when it will disappear.
