About the Work
This group of weavings encompass ideas of light, image, and environment. I took the photo this piece is based on at a very good lesbian bar in Cuzco when I was in my early twenties. The resulting work is warp-printed and hand-woven and based on a velvet weave structure. I intentionally distorted the original photographs in a CMYK screen print/warp-printing process and wove them into this textile image. I was thinking about this piece and the others in the series as film frames, like an image stand-in for narrative or larger experience.
Abbey Muza uses weaving as a methodology for image-making centered in queer identity, haptics, and sensuality. Muza received their MFA as a University Fellow at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, and their BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. They have shown their work throughout the United States and internationally, at spaces including Tiger Strikes Asteroid Philadelphia, Threewalls, and LVL3. Their residencies include ACRE (Artist's Cooperative Residency and Exchange), and Alternative Worksite (supported by the Robert Overby Foundation), and Artist-In-Residence Sefrou (Morocco). They are currently a fellow at Ox-Bow School of Art and a 2022 Fulbright France-Harriet Hale Wooley Awardee.
