Surface Design Newsletter volume 20, #3, summer 2007: Letter from the president:
Two works that literally stopped me in my tracks and still follow me around are Japanese artists Emiko Nakano's large multilayer weaving titled "Ruins" and US artist Adrienne Sloane's hauntingly moving "Cost of War", a series of small machine knit, linen figures lying horizontally and stacked in rows.
Some Strong Expressions Weave into Fiberart International, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Wed, July 25, 2007
....Adrienne Sloane's "Cost of War," for example, takes a moment to deliver its impact, as the viewer approaches the rows of 14 small forms tacked to the wall. They are knitted bodies, small grayish figures stretched horizontally, with sagging heads, feet and genitalia.
