FABRICation

March 14 - April 8, 2016

"Window" by Erin Castellan


FABRICation
features the work of 7 artists (Erin Castellan, Kristy Deetz, Virginia Derryberry, Reni Gower, Rachel Hayes, Susan Iverson, and Natalie Smith) that incorporate a textile sensibility through elements of fabric and fabrication. Inspired by a rich array of historical textiles (drapery to quilt), these complex multi-part constructions are encoded by traditional handicraft to contrast our culture’s rampant media consumption with the redemptive nuance of slow work wrought by hand. Saturated with vibrant color, the luminous materiality activates the senses and counters passive visual skimming. Works range from delicate illusions to layered constructions to architectural interventions. Mixed media includes oil and acrylic paint, vintage clothing, aluminum screens, wool, silk, plastic, thread, vinyl, burlap, rug-hold, glass, recycled objects, and found fabrics. Whether painting, tapestry or construct, these works interweave sensory pleasure with repetitive process to invoke introspection and reflection.
