Isabella Amstrup is an interdisciplinary artist and designer based in Philadelphia. Isabella's practice emphasizes the prominence of textiles in the human experience and recalls the sanctity of cloth in mythology and the everyday. Inspired by the infinite nature and tactile language of weaving, Isabella uses this as the basis for her installation and 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.
Isabella 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.
