Al-Tiba9 Contemporary Art Interview

10 Questions with Deborah Kruger

My latest interview was in the Al-Tiba9 Magazine. This journal is based in Barcelona, Spain. The interviewer created ten excellent questions and reading this interview will take you on a deeper dive into my textile background and my art process. Along the way, I have a chance to talk about the role of research and ecology on my work and cover some of my  inspirations and upcoming work as well as the impact of feminism on my career. Younger artists can also read my advice that I wish I had gotten earlier in life! 

The interview also includes six recent images of my environmental, abstract art, that illustrate points that are covered. Featured in the article are: Fragmentation (2021), Redwing (2023), Accidentals (2023), Ropa Arco Iris (2023), Kimono 2 (2023), Breastplate (2023).

Al-Tiba9 Magazine also has an on-line gallery and is a publishing entity. They have an extensive reach throughout Europe and the Global South. I feel fortunate to have my work presented throughout their network.

In a recent artist interview in the Textile Curator blog, the curator asked how long a piece took to complete. There was really no way to answer but the story behind Accidentals is a good case in point.

Two years ago I pinned up about 90 sheets of my silk screened plastic sheets onto a wall in my studio. It looked like a crazy quilt. I had an idea about making an oversize artist book. It was interesting but not extraordinary.
