Artist Robert Forman has developed techniques entirely his own. He uses colorful yarns, thread and Elmer’s glue to create striking compositions that resemble paintings. State of the Arts visits Forman at his studio, a former firehouse in Hoboken, New Jersey, and at the Montclair Art Museum where he is one of the featured artists in the show, New Directions in Fiber Art.

Eric G. Schultz produced the feature. Joe Conlon served as director of photographer, Kirk Sohr shot additional footage, and Dan Gordon narrates.
