Lesia Sochor to Show Work at Belfast Free Library in December

December 1 - December 31

 

Local artist Lesia Sochor will exhibit a selection of works from her “Threads” series in the Kramer Gallery of the Belfast Free Library. The exhibit is in conjunction with sewing classes for children that are being held at the library;the paintings are all united by the common thread of sewing.

The “Threads” series began with depictions of spools of thread, evolving into women’s bodices and mannequins. Sochor’s latest work portrays attired women painted in thin transparent oils on collaged sewing pattern paper. The images comment on the beauty, power and art of fashion, the demise of handcrafted clothing, the enormity of the garment industry and raises the question of ‘where are our cloths made’?
Sochor believes that despite technology there is a yearning for tactile process. At one time a needle was a woman’s most prized possession.
