Imagine my surprise when I saw a recent article in Hyperallergic in my email, with this feature image:
It's a lithograph by Anni Albers, whom I have always known as primarily a fiber artist. And indeed, doesn't that mottled background remind you of any number of dye jobs you yourself have done in your fiber art career? It looked like some of my experiments with walnut ink.
And that got me to thinking of another déjà vu moment when I saw my own reflection in a famous artist's work. Coincidentally, that famous artist was none other than Anni's husband Josef Albers!
(If you're interested in Albers' printmaking, check out the online exhibit of the current show that Hyperallergic was talking about. It also features prints by another artist who is primarily known for her fiber work, Ruth Asawa.)
