Houston-based artist Jason Villegas' newest work utilizes jersey knit from repurposed T-shirts. Some pieces are abstract works that are derived from a motif used in his process called a "polo pile," which is a pile of shirts that grows and morphs into a spiritual entity (god or ghost form), ziggurat (holy mound) and microbial deconstruction (abstract color blocking). This polo pile imagery plays with the dripping quality of paint as well as the dripping quality of shredded fabric. T-shirt knit in particular has a special quality when torn and stretched creating hair-like ropes or shredded strands.
On view through Aug. 31.
