“They Wanted Us To Weave” is a series of artworks that explore the relationship between form and space through the interplay of basic geometric shapes and limited colors. Drawing inspiration from historic art movements such as Constructivism, Minimalism, and Suprematism, as explored within the Building Blocks exhibition, the title serves as a poignant commentary on the pervasive gender biases faced by female artists within these movements.
In the history of art, female artists were often encouraged or constrained to work in textile or weaving mediums, as they were perceived as “women’s work,” while other visual art practices like painting and design were more highly regarded. This series is a homage to the enduring voices of those brilliant women who chose to defy societal expectations and persisted in their artistic pursuits.
The bold and precise language of geometry in these artworks communicates a powerful visual narrative. Sharp lines, bold shapes, and vibrant colors intertwine to challenge and defy conventional notions of femininity and artistic expression. Through these artworks, I aim to shine a light on the resilience and creative ingenuity of female artists who navigated societal constraints and made their mark in the art world.
