"Fortune Tassels" – Janelle Gramling
– Solo Exhibition–
My current sculptural work often uses gravity as an important element in the form. Pieces are designed to be placed on a wall, usually by one singular hanging point, activating my intended drape and balance. Taking inspiration from studying Sacred Geometry, I explore the patterns in nature and apply significance to them by using symbolism. Forms that are mathematical and perfect in concept, become flawed, natural, and human when brought to life in real materials. Geometric shapes are slightly imperfect, and surfaces bear blemishes including my own fingerprints. I choose materials that feel familiar and close to their natural origin. Stoneware clay, found driftwood, and natural fibers colored with plant-based dyes are currently my favorite materials. These components are combined in very deliberate and simple ways intended to make the viewer ponder its construction. Themes of ecology, balance, and interconnectedness speak through the ways in which strands of fiber weave their way through geometric forms in clay and wrap around branches of found driftwood.
