The vitality of a rock is its presence.
—Olga de Amaral

Olga de Amaral studied textiles at the Cranbrook Academy of Arts in Michigan. Amaral is a renowned artist whose technique, which incorporates fiber, paint, gesso and precious metals, transforms the two-dimensional textile structure into sculptural presences that seamlessly blend art, craft, and design. In their engagement with materials and processes, her works become essentially unclassifiable and self-reflexively authentic.
