Small-scale Wonders

Small-scale Wonders

In contrast to our current obsession with all things digital, the unique handmade object reminds us of the primacy of physical experience. Textile-based art, in particular, demands of both maker and viewer an intimate relationship with material and means. New art made with old technology always carries with it a sense of continuity, physically linking our own experience with the scope of history. But against that backdrop of humble familiarity, personal invention and poetic insight can stand out with striking clarity. Guest curator, David Hornung has selected ten artists who embrace a spirit of experimentation that reflects prevailing trends in textile construction. Their work honors tradition while pointing to the future.
