Meet me in the loom crafts hyperspecific textiles that are functionally grounded and aesthetically experimental.
Using little more than my hands and a very old barn loom, I weave fabric thread by thread. The loom's four posts create a volume that literally encompasses the weaver, and I invite you to “meet” me in that space of creativity.
Whether a striped purple outfit for a wedding ceremony, or a glitch-influenced blanket for the winter, my work embraces the already futuristic visions of centuries-old textile technique. These pieces are practical, abberant, ritualistic, improvisational, unique, and for all my friends. Any purpose-made weaving grows through a dialogue between me and the fiber, each listening to and reflecting the other's cares and perplexities, one line at a time, articulated through rhythm and tension. By meticulously performing the logic of the web, I hopefully seek new surfaces of relation and signification, premised on interdependence, differentiation, and the choreographic poetry of gravity.
Please view past work for an overview of my recent practice, and get in touch for updates and commissions. Welcome to the loom!
Meet me in the loom is the studio of Rosemary Wexler, who began weaving at the beginning of 2019. They go by several names, mostly other herbs. Currently quarantined in Pittsburgh, Rosemary also works in a public library.
