About the Author

MARTY JONAS
martyjonas BENICIA, CA. USA

My Mother taught me to knit, crochet and sew, and my Father taught me to hammer, saw, solder and drill. I cannot remember a time when I was not doing something creative, using threads or cloth, with my hands.
Cloth can be used in an infinite number of ways and has the ability to convey messages, to alter meanings and to transform the ordinary.
The tactile quality of fiber and thread, combined with surface design techniques, provide me with the opportunity to speak visually, that which, I cannot express in words. Fiber is an extension of my voice.
While working with one piece, another concept often emerges and it is this constant, stimulating flow of ideas that causes my work to evolve.
My goal is to create works which are complex enough to provide the viewer with interest when viewed from a distance as well as close. I try to use the medium to its maximum, pushing beyond tradition in hope to spark the viewer’s imagination, thoughts and memories.
