Blair Tate
"Rift", Contemporary abstract woven tapestry, geometric textile sculpture

1991

$8,700

About

"Rift", linen, cotton rope and aluminum, 96" x 65", 1991. This abstract, geometric woven textile wall sculpture was done by contemporary American fiber artist, Blair Tate. Artist statement: "In weaving there is a direct analogy between textile and text – the construction of fabric and the process of writing. Both have methodical underpinnings that provide the framework for development. Both woven strips and written sentences can be rearranged to re-contextualize, to forge relationships, to develop meaning. In my weaving, I incorporate a repeating rhythm of cord wefts. These visually subdivide while physically tying to create the whole. These cords form the scaffold for the tapestry while producing a second, complicating scrim. The two systems are mutually supportive, yet generate visual conflict. Through color and weave I create rhythms which coalesce or splinter, calling across the field to engage with each other. This woven language is not code – it does not refer to specific thoughts. Through abstraction I find freedom for interpretation, and discovery."
