Margo Wolowiec at Anat Ebgi

If you’re in LA this month, don’t miss the solo exhibition of new works by Margo Wolowiec on view at the Anat Ebgi gallery until the end of May. The Textile Arts Center had the pleasure of working with Wolowiec in 2011, when she visited our Brooklyn studio as a guest critic for our Artist in Residency program:

Those Sounds at That Place, Margo Wolowiec, 2014, Handwoven polyester, cotton, dye sublimation ink, fabric dye.

Drawing references from digital imagery gleaned from a variety of social media websites, Wolowiec’s woven pieces are comprised of images printed onto strands of thread via a dye-sublimation process and later handwoven to create solid canvases. Additionally, Wolowiec’s work draws pattern references from traditional Navajo rugs and Bauhaus weavers. Through this process, images are heavily manipulated, re-scaled and re-colored, to the point of abstraction. Her work seamlessly integrates both technological advancement and traditional practices in the modern textile movement, and is nothing short of awe-inspiring.
