"In a figurative sense, the universe is a tapestry. A true tapestry, a work of art, is a miniature universe. Perhaps because of this, weaving for Olga de Amaral is a search for the intangible, for that which cannot be expressed in words but is present in art...She has enriched tapestry's eloquence from perspectives that emphasize the poetry of form, the strength of texture, the abstractions of life, what the retina perceives and the senses transform, what the mind conceives and deft hands execute: artistic intuition, alchemy that purifies creation. She weaves as an expression of life."
