April 2019: Mar Goman

Mar Goman worked primarily in textiles for this show. IIncluded is a series of fabric scrolls which hang from vintage weaving shuttles, whimsical stitched images of dogs and cats, and abstract pieces made of fabric, buttons, and mixed media. “I use sticks and stones, buttons and bones, rusty metal, vintage fabrics and papers, old books, and whatever else I can scavenge. I cut and paste, stitch, draw, paint, stamp, collect, assemble, bind, wrap, nail, drill and carve. My pieces are usually small in scale and done in series. My work is often about the interior journey, our invisible wounds, our common humanity, and the process of becoming authentic spiritual human beings. Making art is one of the things that gives my life meaning.”
