Brigitte Bouquin-Selles

Today, Bouquin-Selles works from Angers, a city in western France at the edge of the Loire Valley, and the artist’s birthplace.

As a pupil of Pierre Daquin at l’École des Beaux Arts in Paris, France, Brigitte Bouquin-Selles (1959) was introduced first-hand to textile arts by a master of the Nouvelle Tapisserie movement.

Today, Bouquin-Selles works from Angers, a city in western France at the edge of the Loire Valley, and the artist’s birthplace. Angers is a site of historic and artistic importance: the local Château d’Angers houses the 14th Century tapestry Tenture de l’Apocalypse. In her own work, Bouquin-Selles entwines pieces of felt, weaving unordered fibers of dense material into visually ordered variations of geometric line and loose bondage. Each piece is hand woven, pitting repetition against chaotic strands of loose fibers.
