Warp + Weft has now closed.

In a series of sculptural works inspired by decades of creating textiles, Lisa Gorman has reimagined the practice of weaving. This time in a rigid material to emphasise the woven structure, like viewing a section of tartan cloth through a magnifying glass.

Gorman's ‘acrylic tartans’ start at the junction of the warp and weft, exploring how two lines of different colour extending lengthwise and crosswise intersect to become one new colour. For Gorman, the sense of tension and union deriving from the point of intersection is where the works visually and metaphorically take hold.
