Hi all, Just popping in to let you know about a residency I have coming up on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of British Columbia Canada. During my summer residency at Fibreworks Studio and Gallery I'll will be exploring the ways in which relational art is either embraced or alienated in the context of an art gallery. I'll be weaving weft-faced tapestry for a body of work which is being created in collaboration with Katie as part of our years-long experiment in re-articulating our relationship as art. I'm interested in both the evocative nature of the familiarity of the photographs I'll be interpreting into cloth, as well as the problematic nature of attempting to make tangible the complexity of a living moment.
In addition to various public visiting hours (TBA) you are invited to join me on Saturday July 1st from 12-3 for a skillshare event where visitors can receive soft instruction on the art of tapestry weaving in a laid-back social setting. Instruction is free and there will be warp and weft for sale, or you can bring your own.
June 26th - July 2nd, July 11th -13th
August 1 - 3, August 25-28
