Amanda McCavour – Thread Drawings

Amanda McCavour - a hard twist scribble

Amanda McCavour is a textile artist living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She holds a BFA from York University where she studied drawing and installation. Amanda uses a sewing machine and water soluble fabric to create these amazing thread drawings and installations. “It seems to be that the possibilities for fibre in contemporary art are endless and that the role it might play is one of expanding and broadening the boundaries between art, craft and design.  Because fibre carries with it a certain history of use, I think that it is an interesting medium to talk about ideas of touch or use,” she says.
