Liz Collins incorporates vivid palettes and dynamic patterning to create work that exists between the functional, decorative, and expressive. Evident in “Frozen,” Collins’ process begins with a machine-woven fabric and then intervenes in a series of decisive, expressionist gestures. The result is a collage of textures: passages of plain and complex weave, patches of horizontal “floats”—weft threads that pass in front of the vertical warps—and also cut warps, which hang loose from the front of the work, suggesting rivulets of paint, curtain fringe, and dripping stalactites.
