Lindsay Carone
25 till 27 Nov 2016
Opening: Saturday 26 Nov 2016 — 17:00 till 19:00 hrs

From Friday 25  through Sunday November 27th open from 14:00 till 18:00 o’clock.

After spending the past year living in India through a Fulbright grant, Lindsay Carone presents new works that draw from her research on craft processes, aesthetics, and traditions of hand-making. In this series of textile-based sculptures, she manipulates and transforms mundane items from contemporary culture in ways that transcend their original form and function.

With a range of traditional influences from intricate embroidery to camel belt braiding to Mughal architecture, Carone presents works that explore value in objects of ornamentation, the decorative impulse, and the enduring mystique of things handmade.
