David Littell: Tapestry I

Tapestry I

David Littell (BFA 1982)

I chose this piece for the Future/Former show because I feel it is a fusion of classical, and formal elements with contemporary technology and methods of image-making. The process used in the creation of the image was both informed and intuitive, and I am fascinated by the woven effect of the multilayered structure and the ambiguous space and levels of depth. Dedicated to the University of Michigan School of Art and the City of Chicago.

This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work. This exhibition honors the creative work and careers of all Stamps School alumni, creates an aspirational connection between generations of U-M artists and designers and current Stamps students, and inspires reflection during the university's Bicentennial year.
