“There is a presence of the maker in the shape
of thousands of stitches, hand-wrought forms, and, as in my collaboratives, the orchestrated
actions of many. I rede ne needle art techniques and transform the everyday into works of contempo- rary relevance. Using soft materials and found objects I create provoca- tive, tactile objects and installations about human relationship. In u- enced by my travels, I draw from historical and cultural experiences around me that extend from my neighborhood to time spent in the Far East.”
In addition to teaching numerous workshops, Colella runs The Fiber Lab, an independent study group that provides individual instruc- tion, exposure to contemporary art, experimentation with material and technique, and a membership to a maker community.
