Hand-dyed woven leather tapestries hang from blackened steel in a wall-mounted diptych produced by AVO’s Brit Kleinman. Displaying a slightly ombre effect, the pieces provide different perspectives depending on where the viewer is standing. “I’m all about pushing the limits of materials,” Kleinman affirms, “and all the art that I create is about trying to change a person’s experience of a space. When your senses are activated, you’re more present within that space. So that’s one of the reasons I love textiles – they’re tactile and visual, and with leather there’s even a smell that comes into play.” While leather is typically thought of as a single surface, using it in weaving turns it into a three-dimensional object. In this instance, the textile sculptures drape into a U-shape with the curves twisting to follow the natural inclination of the weave.
