Carmella Karijo Rother engages uncomplicated materials, tools and processes which resonate with her reflective manner of working, seen in the clean lines and pure forms of her pieces. The natural colours of the materials complement this direction towards clarity and simplicity, referencing the origins of the materials.
Her current exhibition Fibre & Form brings together three distinct periods of her work: silk panels, carded wool sculptures and bowls, rope and paper cord panniers and vessels. Together, they tell the story of Karijo Rother’s extraordinary explorations as an artist pushing the limits of fibre within the realms of art and craft.
Karijo Rother lives near Chelsea, Quebec. As well as being an artist, she has degrees in Biology and Environmental Studies. She has exhibited her work in group and solo shows across North America.
Please join us for the exhibition 0pening and meet the artist on Sunday August 12 from 2-4pm.
Carmella has made small fibre discs that will be sold during the opening for $20 each with all proceeds going to The Hub Hospice.
Fibre & Form continues until September 9.
