Caprice Pierucci
My major influence in my work comes from my mother, Louise Pierucci Holeman. Louise was a pioneer, professional, fiber artist in the late sixties and seventies. Sinuous repetition of form, texture, progressive rhythms and linear abstractions are the images I was surrounded by as a child. I am drawn to natural forms: earth erosion, calcite in cave formations, wind on desert sands. Detritus of man-made objects are also appealing: such as old refrigerator grates, cracks, and scratches on metal or in cement, squashed recycled cardboard. Originally the wood was used as a support or armatures for my fibers and paper. Eventually, the wood became the more expressive way to define to the images in my head.My most recent work is about eternity and time. The undulating rhythms in the forms speak to me of our mortality and the huge expanses of time that lead to one particular moment of beauty. I want the work to be beautiful, but to also have a deeper underlying place to reflect.
