contemporary weaving, frame loom, brooklyn textile

Among the many artists represented at Vitrine is Alicia Scardetta a Brooklyn-based artist who came upon the medium of weaving in 2010. As elaborated on the site:

Alicia Scardetta weaves exclusively on frame looms, most of which she has built out of stretcher bars and nails. For Alicia, Frame looms (as opposed to harness looms) give her the freedom to weave and wrap yarn, creating negative space (holes, gaps) within the woven piece. In her vision, the wrapped elements are about connectivity as well as separation —  ebb and flow.

Above, a detail of her color-packed work appropriately named “Candy Aisle“.
