Brace's tapestries begin with detailed digital drawings created from the artist's imagination specifically for the weavings. Working with the TextielLab at the TextielMuseum in Tilburg, Netherlands, the drawings are translated into unusually fine Jacquard weavings. Through the artist's unique combination of very fine threads, some of which are metallic, translucent or reflective, the pieces change in response to the light source or position of the viewer. In varied lighting, the pieces may move from misty and atmospheric to seeming dimensional, giving the weavings a tangible quality of light and space found in the imagery.
