PRESS RELEASE:

The Newsstand Project is pleased to present Faraway Nearer, an exhibition of new tapestries by Desire Rebecca Moheb-Zandi.

The initial point of Moheb-Zandi’s complex tapestries is the loom, an ancient tool which she redefines as an analog visual computing tool. Utilizing traditional hand-weaving patterns as a sort of base linguistic sandbox, Moheb-Zandi employs the loom to manipulate, juxtapose, and remix them at will.

The artist then airbrushes over the resulting complex surface in a manner contingent upon the medium underneath, sparking a collision between painting and weaving that challenges the preordained hierarchies that organize and divide the fine arts and the crafts.
