“There is something beautiful about the movement of tones between black and white in an old photograph that can evoke in the viewer an inexpressive sensation.”
Gail Skudera’s work incorporates her understanding of traditional textile processes with her painting background and love for antique black and white photographs; her collaged works combine pattern weave structures with photo-transferred images using both on- and off-loom weaving methods. With paint, washes and glazes, thread and collected objects, as well as non-traditional printing processes, she creates complex images that focus on portraits or the human figure in various environments. The juxtaposition of time past—the photographs—with the present, references the passage of time.
