NBO member Jackie Abrams collaborates with Deidre Scherer on an exhibition titled, “Human Textures”.

This body of work expands my reflections on the opposites of tearing apart and piecing together, dividing and uniting, knowing and unknowing, and ultimately, changing self-perception. The visual shifts made by the interlocking surfaces embody a life force and movement throughout the woven image. The fragmentation and fusion of weaving reveals the human being in increments, which is how we get to know each other and ourselves.

My collaborations with Jackie Abrams were instigated by one of my woven works, Connecting To. Abrams responded with her exquisite eye, skillful techniques, and creative spirit. Together we envisioned how to meld our two art forms. Each three-dimensional vessel mirrors our working conversations and holds our attention. – Deidre Scherer
