Who is she?
Brittni Stump is a textile artist who is excited by repurposing discarded materials from everyday life. Manipulating objects like receipts, plastic bags, parking tickets, and cassette tape, she then lays her seemingly mundane treasures in a wash of bright colors. Stump applies her unconventional materials to traditional textile techniques, such as hand weaving, coiling and embroidery. Her latest approach has been constructing soft fiber sculptures from her weavings; continuing her play with form, material, and color off of the loom.
Brittni Stump received her B.F.A. in Crafts with a concentration in Textile Arts from Kent State University in 2013. She recently held her second solo show, Head Space, which featured her first installation work. Stump is a ROY G BIV Gallery Artist and makes her work in her Franklinton space, Chromedge Studios.
