Lace is an art piece I made this summer for the Anarchy Show at Post Gallery.
The scenery depicted is inspired by Los Angeles streets lined with palm trees and the heavy sound of helicopters overhead. Reminding me of the pervasive watchful eye of authority. Creating a textile full of holes illustrates the idea of what looks weak and fragile may hide strength. Lace, like Irish Crochet, is a humble form of communication, decorative and fanciful but steeped in a history of fortitude and survival.
