Rowland Ricketts at Douglas Dawson Gallery, Chicago

Written on December 18, 2010

Rowland Ricketts, the American artist/dyer who grows and dyes with his own indigo, just closed a stunning show of his artworks at the Douglas Dawson Gallery in Chicago. We are very happy to show here installation shots from the exhibition, and please click here to see each of Rowland’s magnificent artworks in detail–large-scale noren which are made from paste resist indigo dyed ramie and hemp kibira.Rowland’s work with botanical indigo is some of the most beautiful of its kind, in my opinion at least.  And having said that, I’ve not yet heard anything counter to my opinion.
