“Creating loom-woven textiles with painted surfaces, Samantha Bittman simultaneously camouflages her patterns as she highlights their structure with thick acrylic—often revealing new patterns through the semi-masked surface.” – Andrew Rafacz
The above works are from Samantha’s show Razzle Dazzle at Andrew Rafacz Gallery in Chicago.
The work of Allison Manch.
“The work presents real and imagined characters through embroidered narratives, often connected to my childhood in Arizona. Threading humor throughout, I stitch drawings and text onto old linens that are often flawed or adorned with preexisting machine-embroidered imagery. I am interested in the permeable boundary that separates actual events in life from the collective mythologies of family stories, literature, and cultural history.”

To create her incredible woven work, artist Lala Abaddon, intricately cuts and hand-weaves her own unique photographic images into “undulating and complicated patterns designed to convey a specific feeling, eventually leaving us with images within images and compelling the viewer to experience alternate realities or states of being.”

“Children want to repeat things. They go on playing the same game again and again. You get bored. What are they doing? The same game again and again? They go on asking for the same story. They enjoy it again and again, and they say, ‘Tell me that story again.’…They have a different quality of consciousness. Nothing is repetitive for them.” –Osho, The Book of Secrets
