Gaze To See, Gauze To Perceive
Maria Appleton
[17/06/21 - 31/07/21]


It’s about what is « in between » things, people and memories. Its about objective presence in physical spaces, that merges into a pile of layered thoughts.
This is a set of works, that emerge from processes of dyeing, printing, metal working, and cut-outs.
Assuming the fabric as a body human-like, where one single thread is primarily essencial and a changing agent on the next one, this is a series of ‘postcards’ that defeat its viewer and change with him. These are a description of the traces left by our movement.
They are works made of windows and the overlapping of events that transform colour into constant change
Gazing to see something and overlaying to perceive it.
