Artist Statement

During a part-time job in retail, I collected the plastic packaging for scarves. To create this piece, I sliced up the plastic and wove the pieces together with the same cotton often used to weave clothing.

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.
