Renata Britez is a textile artist originally from Brazil and based in Fredericton, who graduated from the textile program at NBCCD. Her interest in traditional printing methods and surface design led her to follow the path of textile design. Her goal is to explore traditional textile techniques using natural dyes and fibres.
“MARKED II” is the second piece of the series “MARKED” a collection of items that represent the challenging relationship between human kind and nature through mark-making. This piece was created using a Fredericton map as inspiration for the stitching, as well as, residual materials gathered from Odell Park and surrounding area. The marks on fabric were created with rust printing techniques using rusted objects found on the streets of Fredericton.
