Allison Hersh article about IN:LINE
"Local fiber artist Suzanne Hokanson considers line to be the basic foundation from which art is constructed. For “In::Line,” she exhibits a series of handwoven panels crafted from handspun yarn. In “Walking Line,” “Over There” and “Turn Around,” ivory and red lines wander across a black background, suggesting a visual and conceptual journey.
“Playing with the yarns in my work allows me to explore different textures that are created by turning the lines to create paths that draw the eye from place to place,” she explained. “I allow the piece to evolve at the loom in a spontaneous, improvisational way.”
Hokanson, a longtime member of Fiber Guild of the Savannahs, describes her artisanal art as “drawing with one yarn at a time.”
“In weaving, the line is the warp and weft yarns intersecting to create the woven cloth,” she said. “The power comes when you begin to play with that line.”"
