A graduate of Moscow Textile Institute, Ludmila Aristova came to fiber art after a career in fashion design. Her “painting palette” consists of fabric and thread combined to create smooth color and design transitions within an abstract format. Her use of varied fabric textures produces a color spectrum ranging from rich to subtle in effect. While recognized for her signature prairie points, “wafering” and embellishments, Aristova nonetheless experiments with and applies new techniques to her art. Aristova’s work is included in collections of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, and the All Russia Museum of Applied and Decorative Art in Moscow, as well as numerous private collections in United States, Canada, Asia and Europe.
