a Buzz gallery is featuring Gay E. Lasher’s show “Transformations,” showcasing her digitally printed and brightly colored abstract stitched textile paintings. Gay’s artwork highlights her fascination with using the usual to create the unusual by taking ordinary digital photographs and performing computer alterations to achieve dynamic images enhanced and highly textured with stitch. Gay delights in the notion that these hidden images are just waiting beneath the surface to be discovered.
From a distance, these works read as paintings but, drawing nearer, it is easy to get lost in the playful meanderings of the black thread which works to bring shapes and lines into sharp focus. “Transformations” will get you thinking about the ordinary objects in your life and how else they might be seen.
