Within the Fold

Opening: 4 June 2022 - 23 July 2022

Process driven, meditative, repetitive. Over and over, a thread is pulled through a loom, paint is looped under and around itself, a sewing machine ticks away, embedding colour into a soft grounding. All this is pulled together by the artist’s guiding hand. In weaving, the hand is sentient. A muscle memory kicks in and the brain switches off, idling, while the body is in a state of constant motion, propelled by inertia. The artist starts the process, the hand completes it.
