A collective exhibition by artists using thread as their artistic medium

A collective exhibition by artists using thread as their artistic medium

The exhibition will run from 23 September till 17 October at Il-Kamra ta’ Fuq, Mqabba

The exhibition features three artists who experiment with thread in their oeuvre.  Apart from this medium, they are also bound by the themes of nature and organic forms, which are almost always present in their works.

 Thread has a dual meaning here.  It is the main medium used in these works, which helps in bringing out an organic theme made up of figurative leaves and at other times, it is representing a series of paths creating subconscious or conscious fragmented labyrinths, all creating harmonious tangible and intangible, real but surreal spaces.

Ebru Çinar’s works show complex figurative compositions, where with the use of thread, she’s creating a certain flatness in perspective and an uneasy yet alluring lack of spatiality, which makes the narrative more intriguing and dreamlike.

Bernice Vassallo’s works on the other hand are very abstract in nature and show mastery of the art of sewing in various experiments with this material.  The compositions are almost cerebral veins or paths which are intertwining and captivating as much as a labyrinth of delicate yet powerful cobwebs.

Stefan Spiteri is exhibiting a series of works titled Lost Trail.  His works, although not employing the thread as the actual medium, are in themselves creating the bond between the works of the other two artists,  where the organic theme highlighted in the use of leaves and the fascination for the linear executed in oil , are in themselves creating a beautiful dialogue between the other works.

The exhibition is curated by Art Sweven.
