Cicely Gilman is a silk artist that has been working in the medium for more than 20 years. She received her B.A. in Fashion and Textiles from St. Martins College of Art in London, England in 1979. She was born the US and has lived in Vienna, Austria, London, England, NYC, and LA before moving to Seaside, Oregon in 2020. She was represented by Sue Lapin Museums, where she created silk scarves for many museum shops. She has developed an extensive collection of textile designs.
Textile arts have been developing new creative forms and language involving many during the pandemic. Influenced by postmodernist ideas, Cicely Gilman’s fiber work has become more conceptual. Indeed, with techniques, materials and concepts, the NW artist is completely pushing the limits of the medium. The re-born practices such as embroidery art, quilting, sewing, hand painting,empl and many others, have placed a new focus on the work that feature textiles and threads as a painting and sculpting material.” FH&G
