About The Artist

Artist Statement

My work addresses the boundaries of craft and contemporary art. Using the language of traditional textile techniques as a foundation, my work is both exploration and meditation on the primal act of making things. Working in multiple series at a time, I explore fundamental human phenomena–nostalgia, sentimentality, and record keeping.


DallasKidd was born and raised in San Francisco and graduated from San Francisco State University with a BFA in Textile Art. She traveled to Japan to continue studies under Tsuyoshi Kuno, a fourth generation master dyer who adapted centuries-old dyeing techniques to create new material for avant-garde designers and high end theatrical productions. Learning from artists who push creative boundaries while honoring traditional process continues to influence DallasKidd’s own artwork.  She has exhibited at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, Root Division and galleries throughout the United States.
