For over a decade Elizabeth Whyte Schulzes fiber art has been informed by her travels. Visiting petroglyph sites in the American Southwest to an Aboriginal Art Center in Australias outback, each destination is an opportunity to experience art and culture of diverse communities. On her baskets, she layers images by intersecting and overlapping figure, design and text. Her approach to working on the basket is to present a complex landscape of imagery that is visually challenging and personally satisfying.The woven fiber forms she creates are coiled baskets constructed of pine needles and raffia. Schulze weaves in the tradition of California's Pima and Pomo basketmakers. Weaving with natural materials ensures the integrity of her basket forms before she experiments with adding new and unconventional elements.
