Isabella Amstrup is a Brooklyn-based artist and textile designer. She received an MS in Textile Design from Philadelphia University with a focus in weaving and a BFA in Integrated Design from Parsons School of Design. Isabella's practice emphasizes the prominence of textiles in the human experience and reconnects people to the sanctity of cloth. Inspired by the infinite nature and tactile language of weaving, Isabella uses this as the basis for interactive performance-based work that seeks to create beyond the loom. Situated in potentiality, the language of weaving provides a vehicle for energetic exchange between people, material, and environment, highlighting the connectedness of all things.
