Anke Loh: Interknit

Opening reception: Monday, September 18, 2017 at 5pm

Anke Loh’s collection of knits revolves around women’s stories – their opportunities, challenges, delights and anxieties. Each piece combines bold yet delicate texture and pattern, evoking women who break free from expectation and tradition: courageous yet fragile. The color combinations and select yarns mix lengths, weights, textures, synthetic and natural fibers, matte with shiny, intended to enhance the infinite possibilities of the female form.
