 “In her weaving, Lauren Salazar is able to connect and explore within the layered cultural heritage of the medium, while also indulging in the abstract language of painting. She invites viewers’ associations with weaving, such as domesticity, tradition, femininity, and craft. Furthermore, while exploiting the formal weaving grid, Salazar magnifies and simplifies traditional weaving patterns to reveal the complex designs that the threads are capable of making.” (From the gallery website.)
