Paper Weaving: Integration and Decay

CSMA is pleased to present Paper Weaving: Integration and Decay featuring the work of Bay Area artist and architect Libby Raab. Along with running her architecture studio, she works with photo and paper weaving as an exploration of colors, textures, and patterns. Raab believes that like architecture, weaving is a form of spatial expression and material experimentation. Her work explores the intersection of geometry, digital technology, and nature.  By hand weaving original photos that have been digitally altered, Raab aims to create a dialogue between tradition and innovation, organic and synthetic textures, reality and illusion.
