Artist Mends Place by Stitching Paintings Together
Torn and cut canvas paintings of endangered landscapes are carefully stitched back together in representation of the "mending" of places that are barely hanging on by a thread.
By: Sara Everett
Everett's particular style of painting lends itself well to a series on disappearing wild lands. Her work involves a distinct process of destruction. Everett paints on canvas, and then cuts or tears her paintings into pieces and strips. The destroyed painting then becomes the fabric of something new. Her series of endangered animal portraiture was unique in how the carefully rendered painting disintegrated into tattered and torn strips. For "Mending Place" these landscapes become pieced-together tapestries, the threads holding them together as design elements.
"Mending Place" will open during Pioneer Square's art walk at Core Gallery, 117 Prefontaine Place South. The exhibit will run through April 28th.
