Opening Reception for Han Cao’s “Silhouettes”
September 1 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Paradigm Gallery + Studio is pleased to present Silhouettes, a solo show of new embroidered works by fiber artist, Han Cao. Silhouettes will feature 13 pieces, including Cao’s signature series of embroidered vintage photographs. Cao recontextualizes personal and social histories embedded within found objects by using thread and collage methods to create new narratives with the human form. Cao’s embroidered portraits and landscapes explore the boundaries between self and environment, between reality and dreamscape. Cao will be unveiling her first instance of playing with scale as she unveils 4 pairs of embroidered images: the original photograph and a larger twin. Silhouettes will be on view on the second floor of the Paradigm Arts Building (12 N 3rd St) from September 1 through October 1, 2023 with a public opening reception on Friday, September 1 from 6:00-8:00pm.
