|my work with Michael at Haystack|
Now I am excited to see his work that is part of a textile masters show until Nov. 24th at the Snyderman -Works gallery. It is a beautiful show.
Michael's craftsmanship is flawless but never the point of the works. All the works are evocative and satisfying. His paintings/drawings/collages are made using the visual qualities of the fabrics. Marks are created by stitching, crocheting, knitting. The works are so elegant, but again that is not the point.
