brent wadden

Forgive my blog delinquency! I've seen so much good art lately, and found so little time to write about it. Now, in the interest of butching things up around here (after so much pretty work by women), let's look at these boldly geometric woven pieces by Brent Wadden, a Canadian living in Berlin. On first glance I thought they were paintings, but they're actually loomed cotton. I like how Wadden reverse-appropriates a "lowly" craft like weaving, and does it on a huge scale (some of his pieces are six feet across).
