Jane Kenyon has won multiple awards for her fibre art, including the prestigious Niche Award and the Grand Prize in the Pfaff International Embroidery Challenge “Landscape Let Us Travel” in 2009. Her artwork, including fibre, works on paper and on canvas, can be found in public, corporate and private collections in Canada, US and Korea.
Point of View is a series of contemporary embroidered artworks that challenge the viewer to approach the visual from differing perspectives, moving closer and farther away from both the subject and the artwork itself. From near microscopic close-ups of rock formations or tiny lichens, to vistas of distance horizons, the observations change with the viewpoint of the onlooker.
