Fran Solar is a contemporary Canadian artist who creates unique woven sculptures that challenge traditional concepts by using “masculine” materials and hardware pieces – washers, bike parts and gears – and turning them into quilts and basket vessels that are often categorized as domestic, “feminine” forms. She is intrigued by the ways that the shapes, patinas, and colors of prosaic materials and objects can be recombined into a different pattern in a new context.
