Harmonious Entities: Installation
April 3rd-May 3rd
First Friday Opening Reception: April 6th 5-8pm 2012
part of Fiber Philadelphia
According to Citypaper:
Harmonious Entities, textile artist Sarah Johanna Wondrack’s instillation piece that’s currently up at The Last Drop in Wash West, wraps around the interior of the cozy coffee house like a swarm of moths on their way to the apocalypse. Made from wire and recycled tracing paper, Wondrack created the work to “shed light on even the most common and ordinary materials,” and by using repetition, she says in her artist’s statement, “the objects are exploited and the finished product is greater than the sum of its parts.”
In all of our busy lives, it can be easy to forget the big picture; the possibilities and how to get the most out of nothing. I strive to shed light on even the most common and ordinary materials, transcending their everyday purpose while communicating a sense of hope to re-examine what is around us everyday. Through different processes, I explore textile techniques intuitively and inventively, creating an organic evolution with mass-produced materials. There is a rhythmic, meditative pattern in the creative process, which I find to be profoundly spiritual; a mantra that is easy to get lost in. Through repetition, the objects are exploited and the finished product is greater than the sum of its parts.
