In her textiles, Margo Wolowiec has devised an elaborate, painstaking process from the starting point of her source image to the final work in which she renders digital images tangible. Corrections and Exposures references the reproduction of the image and the information that gets lost from the original to the final product during the transfer process, mimicking how a photographer would work in a darkroom. The weaving process transforms into a paradoxical endeavor; as Wolowiec assembles each textile, with each gesture the underlying images of California landmarks Big Sur and Joshua Tree become even more out of focus. The result is a hybrid work that seamlessly blends the ease of photography with the laborious nature of textile production.
The exhibition is on view through March 29th.
