ABSTRACT
The article profiles textile artist Lilian Tyrrell, who is best known for her Disaster Blanket series. Tyrrell says that she chooses tapestry to express problems of political and social unrest. Her work titled The Lesson has a militia motif and makes an arresting statement about jingoistic hatred. Her work has expanded the horizons of narrative in fiber art by incorporating the physical and historical properties of fiber and of fiber work into the subject matter of her images. Tyrrell learned weaving in 1976 and began reproducing bucolic scenes from her environment in Ravena, Ohio.
