‘Unweavings’ by Fiber Artist Laurie Wohl 🖥


January 18, 2023
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Stephen Wise member Laurie Wohl does the opposite of what you would expect from a fiber artist. Using spiritual narratives found in various text sources, she alludes to the oldest traditions of narrative textiles, but in a completely contemporary idiom. Through form, color, texture and calligraphy she interprets each piece by integrating materials with fibre, text, and pattern. She boldly “unweaves” the fabric to reveal the beginnings of new artwork.

Inspired by our Cantor Daniel Singer’s musical interpretations of Shabbat liturgy, Wohl’s “Shabbat Project” — which was exhibited at Stephen Wise in 2020 — unravels the wonder and sanctity of Shabbat.
