Root Division : Weave, Bundle, Cut, and Layer

Weave, Bundle, Cut, and Layer: Artists with Material Instincts, curated by
Lisa McCutcheon. On view at Root Division, San Francisco from Nov. 5 – 30 2021

This dynamic group exhibition features artists who share the ability to transform non-traditional materials into a personal visual language — a language that illuminates
the beauty and reflection to be found in the mundane. Fabric, rubber, screening, wood, shards of paper, and discarded plastic are just a few of the materials these artists gather, manipulate, and resurrect.

Environmental justice and stewardship of the planet are central to Tara de la Garza’s art practice. She reveals the stories embedded in our collective consumption, specifically of single use plastic. She delves into the archaeology of contemporary waste materials.
