The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
These works are made up of woven plastic mats, manufactured carpets and interior textiles. They are continuously cut, painted over and re-woven together, resulting in a simulated interdependency between the components. Rugged texture and construction are juxtaposed with moments of painterly sensitivity and detail. Layers of paint and decorative elements embed themselves in the carpet’s pile, concentrating and collecting in the places where dirt or debris would naturally accumulate.
