Details:The woven pictures featured in Currents 38 resemble contemporary paintings, yet they are deeply rooted in weaving traditions. Using a digital jacquard loom, the Los Angeles–based artist Christy Matson (b. 1979) pairs new ideas and technologies with her knowledge of the centuries-old craft to create thoughtful, innovative compositions. Though she works with textiles, Matson thinks of herself as a painter. Her woven pictures participate in minimalism, abstraction, and decoration and, hung on a wall, are not utilitarian. She employs historic weaving structures and techniques to explore memory; the gendered history of textile production, long considered a feminized form of labor; and issues around sustainability. Matson’s work honors the traditional medium and reflects the strong, recent embrace of fiber by contemporary artists.
