DEBUTING AT HIGHFIELD: There’s an adventurous side to the Steampunk Artistic Movement, and Canadian fiber artist Dominique Ehrmann fully embraced it to break away from working two-dimensionally and create this grand, free-standing sculpture. The creation, her largest, mixes wood, steel, glass, and other materials with textiles. It also tells the story of a heroine — a quilt adventurer — who breaks out of her chains, moves through a time machine, and realizes her freedom.  Her friends — a punk-looking fox, faithful antelope, and wise raven--guide her every step of the way.  Naturally, the story is a metaphor for the artist’s own journey, which is chronicled through photographs illustrating her step-by-step process.  A dozen panels bring the Time to Break Free” narrative to life.
