building light

October 5, 2011


rebecca medel, the one, knotted and sized cotton, 750 parts stitched together at perpendicular intersections, 8x8x8 feet, 1985

from Tami Wedekind

From 1980 to 2005 Rebecca Medel used the ancient technique of knotted netting with resist dyed linen or cotton threads.  Exploring light through intersecting lines that become planes, layering and floating color and voids, it is structure without weight, a floating mass. A little like early Robert Irwin done with texture.
