Reveries explores the world of landscapes and our bodily relationship with such environments. Whether it’s a mental landscape, a natural space, or a constructed one, each environment elicits a mixture of feelings unique to each individual. Through Reveries, Threadwinners is exploring the synthesis of, and tension between manmade and natural environments, and how human emotions and experience relates to them and forms them. Threadwinners aims to tie people closer to the natural environment by way of artifice, and asks you to consider the authenticity of feeling in a constructed environment versus a naturally occurring one.

Natural landscapes can also act as dreamscapes, allowing one to get lost and explore the inner workings of their mind and consciousness. Crochet pieces bend and play with the line dividing nature from artifice and make one consider the meaning of “authenticity” and whether or not it matters, ultimately.

Threadwinners hope their work will provide reflection on how humans are both stewards and consumers of the earth, simultaneously cultivating and destroying the world around us.

A portion of all artwork sales will be donated to the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter. There will be several events throughout the exhibition, including workshops on July 15 & 22 and an artist talk on July 15.
