Unmercerized cotton on canvas with a natural wood frame | 2023
Rendered in whimsical shapes, and natural colors and textures, the new series of textile works from Alyssa Breid was influenced by the lightness and hope of the coming spring season. The meticulously crafted works are designed to embody the changing of light, brightness, and sweet smell of the fresh spring breeze. In an exciting evolution of her approach, Breid plays with the idea of one shape continuing over two canvases, conveying the thesis that the barrier of the canvas no longer has to end the idea of a shape. Rather, it can bring a sense of continuity over its edge, spilling the form into a new canvas.

“I feel that I am a part of a tradition that generations before me have done, working with thread, working with their hands. It is my goal to carry on this tradition, but in a new way.”
A classically-trained flutist, Alyssa Breid found her artistic medium in minimalist weaving on canvas—a practice that is influenced by the Japanese and Scandinavian concepts of wabi-sabi and hygge. Breid’s work has been featured in the Netherland’s design magazine VTWonen and is featured in numerous international interior designs.
