Depth Through the Senses
Uniting works from the past five series in their Atelier Collection, Merida exhibits textiles that examine the theme of textural depth and perception.
As hand-stitched lines appear and disappear, and tufted contours cast shifting shadows, the monochromatic pieces of woven layers explore movement through subtle marks and shallow planes.
With the vision of their artistic director Sylvie Johnson, Merida blends various natural yarns and inspirations from art history to highlight the motifs composed of raised reliefs. Merida investigates topographical nuance as a means of engaging the visual and physical senses that reach beyond the ground.
