Hilde Arts

Hilde Arts lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium. She is an independent artist and works as a weaving and textile teacher for several institutions.  She has a degree in  Product Development (Industrial Design) but was born an artist. Yarn and fiber were a revelation.

Constructing textiles became an obsession. From the very start of her weaving career she was intrigued by the complexity and possibilities of Jacquard weaving . This is the focus of her present work.

Artist's Statement:  Being an artist, designer and hand weaver,  my interest goes out to complex weaving structures. I work on shaft looms (ranging from 4 to 24  harnesses) and an electronic hand jacquard loom (TC1).

I seek innovation in visual experiences through use of structure, color and form. My work is  a constant evolution of study in these three aspects, the relation and interaction between them.

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
