SinewPosted: October 5, 2011
I have a show up at the Marion Nicoll Gallery. It felt like being back in school again, working to get everything finished. The show runs from Oct. 3-14 with the reception on October 13 from 5-7pm.
Sinew explores the body as textile, and plays with the idea of representation through the use of traditional textile processes. The body is depicted by the accumulation of individual strands of yarn, speaking to the intricacy of the human body, and the intervention of modern medicine. Like tapestry weaving and lacemaking, medical and surgical procedures require knowledge and skilled handwork as the body is cut, manipulated, and stitched.
