Art at Council July 25, 2017 - Dalia Levy, The Paddocks
Dalia Levy is a fibre and textile artist. Her natural dye practice began while working at an environmental non-profit and has led to a love of heritage breeds of sheep, dip dyeing and urban gardening.
Tonight’s artwork is needle felted wool on canvas. The piece is titled The Paddocks and is inspired by her travels throughout New Zealand last year. As a wool artist Dalia was inspired by the landscape and the sheep that provide the inspiration for her artwork.
Her creations aim to use regenerative means, meaning works return to the earth without harm, in fact enhancing the soil. Dalia wants to share nature’s bounty and her creative passions in a sustainable way. She is committed to reviving wearable folk traditions that challenge an extractive economy.
Dahlia has appeared in local art exhibitions, and this piece, as well as others, is currently on display in the Port Moody Public Library.
