the failed utopian & Other Stories

Cyrilla Mozenter exhibits two and three-dimensional pieces of hand stitched industrial wool felt and works on and with paper. While the pieces have been selected from different bodies of work and from different periods of time, there is an essential correspondence between them.
Using deceptively simple, pictogram-like images along with letters and words, Mozenter has invented her own language. The work is in the tradition of iconic images. Cycladic idols, medieval tapestries, Fra Angelico’s frescos, African divination figures, and Aboriginal cave painting are points of reference. The involvement, however, is not with a standardized symbolic system. Through an immersion in an intuitive and improvisational process, a personal symbolism, which has reverberations beyond the self is discovered and revealed.
