December 3, 2022 – March 3, 2023
Hawthorn Contemporary is pleased to announce the exhibition opening of Here Comes That Feeling
featuring fiber works of Chicago-based artist kg.
Intertwining weavings and objects, Here Comes That Feeling, reveals the daily narratives of kg. Life's complications with conflicting emotions and thoughts are unfurled through a series of weavings that intermingle textiles and objects. Individual work’s material list becomes “poetic texts” adding insight into kg’s contemplation and questioning of life’s noteworthy moments. They state, “My studio is a site full of embodied personal history. I make weavings, sculpture, and poetry using the logic of memoir”.
