Overlap As longtime friends living through mid-thirties transitions, our experiences seemed to converge more intensely than ever. This show is an attempt to find the meaning in that chaos that neither of us, in our separate solitary pursuits, could. Each piece is the product of the hopes, fears and delusions of the days, weeks and months of work that go into it. Sharing our work, as with sharing our paths, we find patterns, overlap.
About the artists:
Anna vanAstro was born under the shadow of the Hanford Nuclear Reactor in Washington State in the mid-1970s. Trained in classical ballet, she danced professionally before moving on to teaching and choreography. A degree in Costume Design fused that performing arts background with a childhood spent watching her motherís whirring hands creating both practical and artistic textile projects--with skills learned, as a matter of necessity, from her own mother and grandmother in a small Korean farming village. Anna tended to her first cross-stitch at age six, and still approaches textiles less an object that covers the body, but more as a fiber with endless opportunities. This is her first foray into what she calls freestyle embroidery.
