Hooks-Epstein Galleries presents Lauren Salazar: "Ties that Bind" opening reception
In her weaving, textile artist Lauren Salazar is able to connect and explore within the layered cultural heritage of the medium, while also indulging in the abstract language of painting. Salazar invites the viewers' associations with weaving, such as domesticity, tradition, femininity, and craft. Furthermore, while exploiting the formal weaving grid, Salazar magnifies and simplifies traditional weaving patterns to reveal the complex designs that the threads are capable of making.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until May 12.
