Murray Gibson
Murray Gibson has been weaving tapestries for more than 30 years. He graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design, Calgary, AB. He also received his MA in Textiles from Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK. He always designs his tapestries so that they reference textiles if not specifically tapestries. In some works he has made direct reference to medieval tapestries in both imagery and technique, but there are also more subtle illusions to cloth through the use of patterning and even the use of a woven border. It is very important to Murray that my concepts and imagery are always best realized in a woven form. (I don’t always succeed. In 2015, Murray was named a Master Artisan by Craft Nova Scotia (formerly The Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council). He was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 2019.
