Louise Eastman: The iconic, crayon-colored woven potholder printed, cast and woven unexpected in material and scale.
Slip cast bricks glazed and fired with playful, childlike brush strokes and color. Unfinished knitted swatches collaged and transformed.
: Exploring canvas and paper using everyday heating elements such as hot plates, irons and charcoal lighters to "draw" onto surfaces. Marking time and marking hurt, marking our existence and journey.
: In a makeshift bathroom darkroom with ordinary household supplies, images of the universe realized. A toothbrush dipped into household cleaning products, drawing the thumb across the bristles, spraying on photographic paper to make an image simulating star-dense galaxies. A puffed up shower cap placed directly on the paper, varying exposure times to produce simulated stages of the solar eclipse.
: With printing press residing in the studio-kitchen and a vintage book of interior design on the shelf, selected images of interior objects and rooms are transformed into puzzle-like matrices on vinyl and printed.
