About the Artist and Formal Analysis

Caryn Aasness is an undergrad student of CSULB pursuing her BFA in Fiber. She has been in school for four and a half years and says that this Fall 2016 will be her last semester. Other than working on her fiber art, she also likes to read, watch television, climbing, running, and other outdoor activities. Her motivation behind her fiber work is her interest in using text within her stitching in order to express vulnerability of people. She wanted others to encourage or let others know that it takes more than a first look to know a certain person whether they are your relative or friend. She is hoping to go to grad school after graduating, if not she would want to work somewhere for the moment. She has not planned much a far but she is looking forward to it.

My Experience

I had fun “decrypting” the hidden messages in each cloth, and from there I chose two quotes that relate to me so much. I left Merlino Gallery thinking I should really get to know the people in my life, hear their stories and their experiences the past two years after high school. How are they? Where are they? What are they doing? I do not know, but I am encouraged to find out.
