Swoop by Textile artist Lizz Aston; Pattern/Study Exhibition February 2016

Textile artist Lizz Aston’s Pattern / Study Exhibition curated by Tori Maas is on now at the Learning Zone.

Pattern / Study—a series of paper cutting designs digitally modified and hand-cut, combine technology with traditional materials and methods.

Aston’s hand-cut patterns originate from handmade objects, digitized then transcribed onto Japanese Kozo paper, which are individually hand dyed and formed into 3 dimensional sculptural paper installations.
