Weaving Abstractions

Aug 26, 2021 - Sep 14, 2021

Following the threads between abstraction and textiles is a continuous engagement, one that many contemporary artists appreciate exploring on a local and a global level. This, given the rich history behind the relationship between abstraction and textiles which has been traced to stretches back to over 12,000 years ago when weavers across America and India developed a distinct language of abstract forms based largely on angled geometry. The earliest surviving relics of textile indicate that they developed sophisticated patterns of triangles, squares, rectangles, chevrons, and checkerboards. We may note that this tradition stands in stark contrast to Australian aboriginal practices, which developed more towards a language of dots, circles, and flowing, biomorphic shapes. It is a stunning combination of both geometric and biomorphic forms that we play witness to in this exhibition hosted at 079 |STORIES.
