“The art of Lenore Tawney is multifaceted—yet all of one piece. A personal, hidden poetry transfuses it, whether the medium is fiber, collage, assemblage, or postcard. And the message, which is always fugitive, hides beneath a flexible technique… In all Tawney’s work, the past confronts the present, the East the West, the mundane the visionary; but more often it is the visionary that predominates.” —Katharine Kuh
