Artist Statement

This playful piece uses extension cords as a makeshift warp to create a woven wall hanging using recycled natural wool. The short lengths of wool are left hang adding another dimension to the work.

About the Artist

Karen Rubado

Karen Rubado deploys her loom to do, to undo, and to make-do, both materially and to trouble and loosen our attachments to and associations with things. A strong element that runs throughout her works is that they are unresolved, and by being situated between being done and undone, woven and unwoven there is a sense that we are part of a fleeting moment in the fabric of time.
