Gallery 263 is pleased to present in over out under through, a Curatorial Proposal Series exhibition of large-scale, colorful and visually charged abstract works on paper by Sean Riley and Jessica Slaven.

This exhibit brings together the work of two artists for whom the processes of weaving, unweaving, embroidering, dyeing, and sewing—typically reserved for fabrics and fiber—have come to inhabit their drawing and painting practices.  Sean Riley previously used inherited clothing to create quilts and embroidered pieces, and has since moved towards examining the weave structure of fabric and translating it in 2-D. Sewing was integral to Jessica Slaven’s sculptural work, and for four years she built her career as a commercial textile designer, weaving and putting textiles into production. Now, Jessica adapts those skills and experiences for painting.
