Nancy Mims: Beheld

May 12-June 25, 2016
opening reception: May 20, 6-8pm
closing reception: June 17, 6-8pm

Nancy Mims Beheld is a continuation of her ongoing recent series The Sky Looms and The Passed Looms Present, with new intricate and intimate views of the world above and below. Often stitched or woven and printed on linen, her images draw the viewer to touch the earth and sky.

The Sky Looms translates the process of disassembly and reassembly of imagery into the acts of stitching and weaving.

“I was attracted to embroidery, I had the urge to stitch, but I could never summon the patience for traditional embroidery, could never sit and stitch – until I started these pieces. After I started stitching scaffolding in the sky, I couldn’t stop.”

The Sky Looms series works with “collaborating with chance” - to borrow Rebecca Solnit’s phrase. The result is in works that appear whole, but reveal their fragmentation and fragility of the structural underpinnings keeping the fabric (and image) intact.
