A gestating, dripping, climbing, rotting, spilling, dying, birthing, thriving, seemingly teeming fibre art installation. All this and less and more.
Fecund is about transformation, birth and rebirth, growth, life death life, metamorphosis. It is about women, about rising and digging deep, reaching antennae to the sky, sending out rhizomes and taproots, dissecting the true nature of being. Abundance spilling over, teeming with heat and hum.
Its a tall order, really.
Tammy Jane Lepp is best known for her otherworldly fibre art installations and wearable art creations that step well past the border of imaginative and dive straight into the realm of bizarre. Tammy is a multidisciplinary artist who was born and raised Omemee Ontario. Via many false starts, stops, sidewinds, reroutes, joyful sojourns, twisty turns and lallygagging she now lives and pulls things up by their roots to snuffle about curiously at what’s going on underneath it all, in St. Catharines.
