About Saves Nine

I’ve had a long affinity with textile works that has become acute during these past few years during the pandemic. Fabric and thread are everyday elements but the act of sewing, stitching, threading, and weaving builds texture, dimension, pattern and movement. While functional sewing tends to favor straight lines, rectangles and set patterns, the artworks here explore curves and abstraction, with creative interplay between minimalism and maximalism. I chose these works for their tangible dynamism and energy.
