Rachel DuVall is a Los Angeles based textile artist making hand-woven works. Her geometric compositions explore the grid structure inherent to weaving, the result of the warp and weft fibers intersecting. By using repetition of line and shape, the work investigates the relationship between the rigid framework required to produce a weaving and the flexible imperfect nature of the resulting material. Within this repetition the subtlest differences become amplified, such as the variation in tension of each hand woven line, or subtle color shifts achieved with by hand dyed fibers. Rachel DuVall received her BFA in Fiber from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2008.
