Robin Muller

After two decades of weaving geometric wall hangings and creating structurally complex artist’s books, I have begun using photographic imagery and computer jacquard technology to create my work. The Jacquard loom lifts threads individually to create curvilinear and pictorial images impossible to achieve on traditional hand-weaving equipment.

Robin Muller received her BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University and her MFA from University of Michigan. She worked at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and taught at University of North Dakota before joining the NSCAD faculty in 1979. Her work is in textiles and book arts collections in Canada and internationally.

These scrolls pay homage to traditional crafts persons, whom I’ve met while traveling. The work draws a comparison between the scroll, used to record narrative in early cultures and the loom, used to record stories in a few preliterate cultures.
