From fabric to flight: the remarkable fiber sculptures of Molly Burgess

Molly Burgess, a talented textile artist from Grand Rapids, Michigan, weaves magic with thread. Her captivating creations aren’t your typical paintings or pottery. Instead, Burgess utilizes the versatility of fabric to craft breathtaking sculptures of moths and bats. Each piece is meticulously crafted in her home studio, transforming ordinary textiles into creatures that seem to burst from the canvas and take flight.

Burgess’s artistic approach is both innovative and meticulous. She meticulously selects and prints fabrics that capture the intricate details of her subjects, from the delicate veins of a moth’s wing to the soft fur of a bat. The fabrics are then meticulously hand-cut and assembled, bringing the creatures to life in a dimensional and captivating way. The resulting sculptures are not only visually stunning but also possess a captivating sense of movement and realism.

Burgess’s fiber sculptures transcend the boundaries of traditional textile art. Her work celebrates the beauty of the natural world and the transformative power of artistic expression. By breathing life into fabric, Burgess invites viewers to appreciate the wonders of moths and bats, often misunderstood creatures, in a whole new light.
