Introduction | 展覽介紹

Susan Taber Avila creates textile artwork to enhance perception of contemporary culture. Her unique stitched constructions intersect art, design, and fashion. While stitching is often used for surface embellishment (embroidery) or joining materials, Avila simultaneously develops both the structure and surface of an object through the stitching process. She is committed to stitching because this ubiquitous method, prevalent throughout history, still has something new to say. The stitch creates a mark, adds color, and defines the structure. Avila works with digitally printed imagery, recycled fabrics, and a dissolvable polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) substrate to create new textile structures and wearable designs. A Sartorial Nature includes work inspired by nature, especially the organization and perception of nature by humans. The exhibition explores a range of ideas including beauty, metaphor, abstraction, memory, and artifice.
