ON WINGS OF PRAYER: FEATURING WORK BY
NEW YORK FIBER ARTIST LAURIE WOHL
FEBRUARY 28 – APRIL 25, 2013
Laurie Wohl’s Unweavings® fiber art pieces convey spiritual narratives through form, color, texture, and calligraphy. The words within each piece and the unwoven form that suggests these words serve as a visual midrash on various Jewish spiritual themes, evoking the poetry of Biblical texts. The unwoven spaces form symbolic shapes – wings, ladders, prayer shawls, veils, trees, falling waters, rivers, and the sacred architecture of windows, domes, and gates.
“By unweaving the fabric I make manifest what is hidden within the material— liberating the threads to create shape, then “reweaving” through color, texture, and text.” – Laurie Wohl)
