William Wiley has produced a number of tapestries with the Magnolia Tapestry Project, depicting a host of mythic and politically charged figures with characteristically adventurous formal gusto. Their freewheeling wordplay, uninhibited bolts of color and bold charcoal strokes are all charged with Wiley’s contagious joie de vivre.
