“Natural Abstractions”

KARI BREITIGAM
  • Kari Breitigam

A new exhibit from Kari Breitigam, “Natural Abstractions” is a collection of textile pieces that are dyed, manipulated, and arranged by the Houston-based artist. Working from a background in both painting and fiber art, Breitigam is able to use the depth, textures and tactile nature of various kinds of fabrics, combined with an astute application of color, to create a painterly feeling in her work. Drawing on personal experiences of moving around the country — she’s from Ohio and did graduate work in Indiana before settling in Houston — Breitigam aims to capture “little snippets of serenity and create abstracted personal pieces of the overwhelming vastness of our world.” Her works, which seem both strange and inviting at once, are testaments to the fact that “There is something terribly lonely about nature.” Free, 6-9pm Sat, Mantle Art Space, 714 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 971-4740, mantleartspace.com.
