CORRESPONDENCE features a new series of weaving-objects through which the artist explores the relation between abstraction, memory and the process of making.
Utilizing a loom attached to her body and drawing inspiration from past family living spaces she creates meticulously hand woven images. Form emerges as the result of simultaneously making and remembering.
This exhibition is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department, Alamo Glass, and McCann Woodworks.
