Conduit Gallery will present "Feeling Like an Abstraction," a solo exhibition of work by Austin-based artist Erin Curtis.

In the formless months of the pandemic summer, that became fall and winter and spring again, time is marked with astrology podcasts, Marketplace gurus, weeks of Mondays and an unknown future. The paintings created for this show are evidence of a process and a time outside of time.

The works in the show reflect a dedication to forms of abstraction not found in museums and galleries, but in homes — specifically textiles created for comfort, pleasure, and utility. The heart of the show are multi-layered, cut canvas paintings inspired by traditional hand-woven textiles and the women who sew their stories into garments, quilts and rugs that tell their hopes, warm their families and become their walls.

The exhibition will remain on display through May 15.
