The AVA is pleased to present “Unfolding Her” by Jill Trappler
Beneath it is all dark, it is all spreading, it is unfathomably deep; but now and again we rise to the surface and that is what you see us by.
‘To the Lighthouse’ Virginia Wolf
In “Unfolding Her” Jill Trappler explores the notion of ‘foreverness’ in her non-figurative art practice.
The interwoven rock faces of the mountain enfold me, hold me as I wander and then return to work with a small surface in an attempt to describe, to give rise to, the Great Mother and unfold my spirit from her embrace. These journeys continue as the ancestor’s surface and the stars deliver their messages…
As a weaver by trade I know the significance of wearing color, pattern and texture and the way they interact with ones sense of being.
Employing several different techniques and media: printmaking, weaving, beadwork, painting, collage, Trappler’s new body of work provides a vehicle that takes us into memory, stories, myths and innate places.
