Crafted Realities will be Unreal!
December 5th Gallery 111 will be hosting the work of Jesse Bromm along with some new mixed media textiles by myself. I first saw Jesse's work at the Artist Project 2 years ago and again this summer at the Toronto Outdoor Show. There is something extremely playful about his work, and yet layers of meaning come to the work when you spend time investigating his juxtaposition of materials. What I didn't realize originally is that Jesse actually hand blows his own glass containers for his work. It is this level of craftsmanship that I would like to bring to my own practice. I am really excited to see how his miniature vignettes will look beside my enlarged photos of embroidery hoops.
