Hook, Line and Sprinkle
New and pre-loved works by Annanda DeSilva
This series is 70% new, 30% seen. Incorporating collage, crochet, painting and drawing media, Hook, Line and Sprinkle explores thread becoming line, line becoming shape and shape being celebrated in all its realness, curvaceousness, sexiness, kinkiness and mess. Incorporating handmade and collected textiles into painted works at once exposes and relieves the artiist's hoarding tendencies, while texturally tantalizing kindreds who see their inner neon and glitter guts reflected in the chaos. The show Celebrates the oft-unnoticed superpowers of survivors, magical creatures, sassy bitches and Crazy folks, as well as the asymmetry of voluptuous forms.
