Kris Estenger is a self taught fiber artist best known for her large sized textural art quilts and rust dyed textiles.
Her rust dyed series includes woven and non-woven textiles that have been dyed to different variations using rusty objects.
Spent, dissipated, and recycled industrial materials, like fiberglass, carbon, aramids, and metals are used repeatedly throughout her work. Combining different types of fabrics and objects to generate texture and surface design is a consistent theme.
Surface design processes include painting, dyeing, assemblage, and manipulating wet fabrics using various tools and objects.
