The second work in BAMPFA’s new Art Wall series of commissioned temporary works is a monumental weaving by East Bay artist Terri Friedman. Here, the artist describes her recent embrace of weaving as a means to extend her exploration of painting: Weaving color. Yarn as paint. For years I have investigated painting through everyday materials: kinetic sculpture, installation, painted pours. And that is exactly how I approach the loom. Expanding material limits, diving into color, redefining landscapes, interested in invention and innovation yet borrowing from tradition.
