Embroidered and cut fabric works
In these pieces of freehand embroidery on tulle and linen, Emily explores images from her dreams. The fabric forms assume shapes of pillows, wrappings, and coverings, but with their sheer quality, expose what is underneath. The layers of stitching overlap, and in the right light cast shadows on the wall and on itself.
In these pieces she also experiments with cutting out shapes and forms, faces, and hands. Cutting them out of the bigger picture and displacing them. Sometimes dreams feel that way, you are in one place and it is beautiful, and then immediately you are somewhere else, with no explanation.
Opening Reception 4-6pm Sunday, January 20th.
