Bridget Lo(e)w

Bridget Low is a textile artist, born and raised in Belgium. She graduated from VCUarts' Craft&Material studies department in the spring of 2017 with a focus in fibers, and a minor in Sculpture and Extended Media. Her work subverts the traditions of weaving, crochet, and quilt making by expanding their material body, form, and story. Low works in a vivid and colorful world, her object making practice presents itself as installations, performance workshops, wearables, and videos. She questions utility through dark humor and domestic patterns of femininity. Low explores her home country’s vast history and impact on tapestry weavings while creating tapestries based off personal narratives, drawings, and experience as an alien in America.
