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 vertical posts outline a cube that literally encompasses the weaver, and I invite you to “meet” me in that place of creativity.
From a whimsical purple wedding outfit to a blanket inspired by optical illusions, my work embraces the already futuristic visions of centuries-old textile technique. These pieces are practical, abberant, ritualistic, improvisational, loving, ecstatic, and for all my friends. Wholly unique and sometimes unexpected forms sprout out of my embodied dialogue with the fiber. And, by performing the meticulous logic of the web, articulated through rhythm and tension, I 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 quarantining in Pittsburgh, Rosemary also works in a public library.
