Evelyne Alice Bridier - Textile artist, felt maker - Felt imagination A graphic designer by training, Evelyne Alice Bridier has always been passionate about textile creation. In 2003, she discovered the techniques of feltmaking, which became her favourite art. Since then, she has been constantly exploring all the potentialities of felted wool, which she works both into flat surfaces and complex volumes. Drawing inspiration from Sonia Delaunay’s " simultaneous contrasts " Evelyne enjoys blurring the edges of her work in installations, sculptures and wearable creations. The abrupt encounters of the rough and the sophisticated, the wild and the precious guide the maker through journeys whose destinations are always surprising. Her works speak a refined, minimalist language, whispering soft emotions.
