SANDRA BENDOR
ARTIST STATEMENT:  

Sandra Bendor is a mixed media textile artist. She works exclusively with vintage and recycled silks and sews all of her work by hand using extreme sewing techniques. She is a proponent of the “slow art” movement and believes in creating artwork using the ancient and traditional elements of time and patience as an antidote to the ever-increasing speed of the modern world.

Bendor began collecting vintage and antique silk while traveling around the world for the US State Department singing solo concerts of American folk music in countries including India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and South Korea. Her love of using textiles for artwork began while on tour in the US with the National Endowment for the Humanities. In Appalachia Bendor observed people creating exquisite clothing and quilts by hand from fabric used and worn by generations of family members. Thus began a lifelong interest in collecting and upcycling textiles. In addition to the artwork presented here, Bendor also creates large-scale abstract quilts in recycled silks and silk velvets.
