Myra Burg

Wanting a change from practicing architecture, and realizing my Didgeridoo at home was more an art piece than musical instrument, I wrapped a companion piece, and named it “The Quiet Oboe.” I fell in love with the warmth of wrapped fiber on the cylindrical form. Each tube is coated with adhesive, and individually wrapped, top to bottom, with sumptuous fiber of varying sheen and texture.

Recovering from architecture, my saving passion is these cylindrical tapestries I call “Quiet Oboes”, and the sculptural pieces, constructions of these fiber wrapped tubes in combination with metal structure.
Myra produces innovative fiber/textile site-specific art. Since 1976 Myra has produced installations for private collections and public space, domestic and abroad. Myra is probably best known for her Quiet Oboes. Sizes range from tabletop to airplane hangar for freestanding, wall-mounted and aerial constructions.
