Sparkling or Still, Kristine Woods’ solo exhibition of weavings, prints and sculptures
Geary is pleased to present Sparkling or Still, Kristine Woods’ solo exhibition of weavings, prints and sculptures. Woods is showing works on paper for the first time and Vagrancies Rules, a 13’ long free-standing textile, is reconfigured in response to the architectural elements of the gallery. The small weavings in the series, of or related to, are made on a rudimentary portable loom. Felt Around Federal Standard 33538 is a large scale felted wool installation that makes specific use of Geary’s windowed view of a highly regulated public space to consider color, the history and properties of felt, and the standardization of the movement of bodies.
