Award-winning textile design on display at UH

“Northwood Awakening,” now on display at UH.

Steve and Ann Loveless both grew up in northwestern lower Michigan and love the nature and beauty of the outdoors. Steve is a fine art photographer, and Ann is a textile artist.

After exhibiting some of Ann’s textile designs inspired by Steve’s photography, they had the idea to create works that morph a photograph into a textile. One aspect of the process is that it can trick the viewer into questioning what they are seeing and invite them to engage more with the work.

Northwood Awakening, a 25-by-5 foot piece that was the ArtPrize 2015 Public Vote Grand Prize winner, is currently on display at Michigan Medicine. You can see it for yourself:
