Genevieve Griffiths

 

April 15 - May 7, 2017

The Koskela Gallery is proud to present the first solo exhibition by New-Zealand based weaver and architect Genevieve Griffiths.

Griffiths is renowned for her contemporary, intimate tapestries that fuse surface and symbolic design. Inspired by fictional built landscapes, Griffiths pure wool designs are reminiscent of the constructivist forms and the tapestries of Bauhaus weavers such as Gunta Stolzl.

A series of original watercolour tapestry studies will be exhibited alongside 5 new weavings, giving an insight into the intricacy and complexity of Griffiths's woven imagery.
