Alicia Scardetta is a Brooklyn-based, Texas born artist. She received her BFA from Pratt Institute in 2012. She was first introduced to weaving through a studio internship at the Textile Arts Center in 2011. Later, she attended workshops at Haystack School of Crafts and Penland School of Crafts, where she further honed her technical skills in fibers.
Alicia's work is largely comprised of one of-a-kind woven wall pieces that explore the structural variables of tapestry weaving. The vibrant colors, wrapped elements and unexpected compositions found in her work are largely drawn from objects associated with girlhood; including friendship bracelets, jump ropes and hair braids. By weaving these elements associated with her personal memories and identity into her work, Alicia achieves a unique, playful quality with every piece.
