Lea Thomas | Currents

April 20 @ 1:30 pm - 6:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Every week on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until May 8, 2019

A drop of dark blue appears, its stain spreading over the surface. Tendrils stretch across, their circuits entwining and dispersing, carving lucid pathways in their wake. The deepest blue requires more than just one application, it is a multitude of layers blended into one another, with slightly different circumstances and results each time, as sapphire streams ebb and flow concurrently. The azure currents of time, energy, and memory upwell and merge in union.

Lea Thomas applies this aesthetic philosophy in her practice, creating a pool of the deepest blue for her hand-woven textiles. With a lineage harkening back to the traditional use of Japanese indigo in its process and symbolism, Thomas’s work echoes the motion of her predecessors, diving far under the waves of deep time. As the fibers submerge into a vat of natural dye, so does one’s consciousness surge in connection to our environment, our humanity, and the depths of our psyches.

Wednesday and Friday from 1:30-6:30, and Saturday & Sunday from 12-6pm & by appointment
