I am interested in the ability of artwork to elevate everyday discarded materials. In power play, I wove recycled white cords and cables to create this playful wall hanging.
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.
