This gallery of the sewn fabric collage of Merle Axelerad ( formerly known as Merle Axelrad-Serlin and Merle Serlin) is presented for those art collectors, art consultants, art galleries and visitors who have disabled scripting on their browsers. You may also view these fabric collages via the portfolio page gallery.
The collection includes pieces that were commisioned by public art commissions, corporate art purchasers and private art collectors as well as fabric collage that were created as non- commissioned pieces.
Each of these textile art pieces are created by sewning thousands of fabric pieces together collage style to create the final fabric collage. Unlike traditional collage, Merle Axelrad uses no adhesives in creating her landscapes, botanical studies and architectural pieces. The resulting fabric art can often be first confused with photography or water colors.
