Scintillating Textiles: Samantha Bittman

"Zebra 1" 2009 acrylic on handwoven textile

Fashion/Textile artist of the week,  Chicagoan Samantha Bittman, creates these stunning pieces by painting with acrylic on textiles .  She graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA and also received an MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Design.

Some of her flashy pieces  were shown last month at the West, Wester, Westest group show @ FFDG  (248 Fillmore St. in San Francisco.)   Staring at them long and hard, one can get the whole effect.  They put me in a trance.  – Rae
