Sola Fiedler grew up in London during and after World War II. That was a time when people learned to recycle, especially clothing and materials. Today Sola uses recycled yarn from thrift shops and estate sales to create beautiful tapestries like the Las Vegas one above.
The first time I saw the Las Vegas tapestry at the Trifecta Gallery, I stood in awe. My eyes traveled over the piece taking in the many details of the strip and the various landmarks that make up that name. When you look close, you can see the trees that are close to the buildings. The metallic threads that create the various streets in the background show the grid work that makes Las Vegas an easy city to travel. The mountains in the background shelter the valley city and everything is perfect. The work is meticulous. You can see this masterpiece up close and personal at The Center, 401 So. Maryland Pkwy, Las Vegas.
The picture above does not have the best lighting and I did not have the best camera angle. The picture below is from her website. See the difference? solafiedler.com Take the time to browse Sola Fiedler’s other works.
I always enjoy finding a new artist whose work causes me to think about them after I have left the gallery and touches me in a profound way. Sola Fiedler is such an artist.
