A solo exhibition of fiber paintings by Emma Balder, "Pareidolia" explores the psychological phenomenon of seeing recognizable imagery within abstracted forms. Through Balder’s fiber painting process, where she reassigns the smallest parts of textile waste to a medium that functions like paint, forms begin to take shape within the fibers. The material takes on a new life; images of angels, seahorses, or never-before-seen creatures appear in the fibers. This unexpected imagery delivers an impact that transcends the materiality of the work and provides substance to the obscure.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 2.
