BURNT — an exhibit by Lauren Dodge


"If you bash into the web of a spider, she doesn't get mad. She weaves and repairs it."  -Louise Bourgeois

I began the practice of embroidery after a major injury to pass the time between doses of painkillers and wound dressings, using materials and memories from the experience to discover a deep love for fiber art. "Burnt" is a drugged and messy fabric exploration through a battle with the hands and the brain. Each of my pieces has the textured notion of a journey through an ongoing repair.
