Episodic Threads

  • Tugboat Gallery 116 North 14th Street Lincoln, NE, 68508 United States (map)

"Episodic Threads" stitches together past remembrances and future predictions using fabric, thread, oil paint, water based media and random fascination.
Patrick Studebaker:
Working in a combination of traditional style oil paint and oil based enamel allows for a physical separation or depth to the surface and gives the imagery access to multiple points of context and free association. 
Systematically random arrangement of information, common themes, individual episodic threads, painted, framed.

Ed Rumbaugh:
My work is non-objective. I use little planning, preferring directions from the unconscious, found or remembered fragments from dreams, and imaginary instructions on cosmic origins. Using the basic colors: red, yellow, blue, and black and white; I start with commercially printed cotton fabric and paint with water based mixed media. I try not to let my thinking affect the result by using only basic shapes: square, circle, line and dots. The fascination for me is to wonder what will be the outcome of my time and effort.

Shea Wilkinson:
Shea's stitched fiber works describe a future in which biology and technology will be so intermingled as to be hard to determine where each begins and ends.
