Lin Hartgrove Sanchez's Interwoven
January 9 - February 28, 2004
Lin Hartgrove-Sanchez’ background as an artist is primarily live theater, however, she has chosen to rechannel her creative energy into this new body of work exploring woven photography. Her work combines photography and weaving into an art form that is simultaneously three dimensional, impressionistic, and surreal. The result is an engaging piece offering a fresh perspective on the familiar. Lin credits her husband Ernesto Sanchez for inspiring her to make art.
My background as an artist has been primarily in the realm of live theater. Because of the physical demands of performing I decided to take a break this year. This body of work is the result of that rechanneled energy that otherwise would have come out on stage.
I had never made a serious attempt at making art before my husband came into my life. I credit him with inspiring me.
My artwork combines two loves: photography and weaving into an art form that is at one time three-dimensional, impressionistic, and surreal. My subject matter originates from travels far, to as near as my own back yard.
The result is an engaging piece that pulls the viewer in for a fresh perspective on the familiar.
