Marsha Wineman: BACK STITCHED
May 2, 2019 – May 31, 2019.
Marsha Wineman presents BACK STITCHED, an exhibition where thread replaces ink or graphite in life drawings that are stitched in aida cloth or linen. Different than line laid on a surface such as paper, thread in cloth provides the method for a sensed or haptic experience where, without actual physical contact one knows the physicality of the thread and the fibre.
