Culled from a few of our favorite recent exhibitions, this selection of work focuses on materials, movement, pattern, color, and light. Each of these artists employ very different techniques, often utilizing textiles, iconography, flora, found objects, “sloppy” geometry and fabrication; but all elicit reverential humor for the commonplace and the banal objects of everyday life. Their use of color and pattern unify their collective voices while offering entry points into their individual practices. While each of the four artists pull references from a variety of sources, histories, and contexts the formal qualities of the works offer moments of connectivity and reciprocity, engaging in playful dialog with one another and the exhibition space itself.
CURRENT #bitres ARTIST
My art form relates to fibers and the way they are cultivated, spun, dyed, woven, stitched, and ultimately worn or displayed. My inspiration comes from the lessons I learn through various life experiences, observations, and mistakes. Through the manipulation of fabrics, yarns, color, silhouettes and textures, I visualize a lesson that I’m struggling with at the time. My art is completed in the way I choose to showcase finished collections of work - online, in print, and on the runway.
