Margo Wolowiec at Jessica Silverman Gallery

Evergreen, Searchlight, Rosebud, a solo show of new large-scale works by Margo Wolowiec is currently on view at the Jessica Silverman Gallery. Wolowiec’s work is informed by issues surrounding social media and cyberspace. She collects jpegs through hashtag searches, creates a composite image, and through dye- sublimation transfers it to the polymer threads. These threads are then woven on a manual loom, resulting in beautiful abstract canvases.
