Gallery 263

Hello All
Happy New Year!
Proud to announce an exhibition with my good friend Jessica Slaven of new, colorful and visually charged abstract works on paper at Gallery 263 in Cambridge, MA.
In our work the processes of weaving, unweaving, embroidering, dyeing, and sewing—typically reserved for fabrics and fiber—have come to inhabit our drawing and painting practices. I have used inherited clothing to create quilts and embroidered pieces, and have since moved towards examining the weave structure of fabric and translating it into 2-D. Sewing was integral to Jessica’s sculptural work, and for four years she built her career as a commercial textile designer, weaving and putting textiles into production. Now, she adapts those skills and experiences for painting.
