Illuminated, knitted, woven and crocheted yarns, covered metallic poles which stood majestically in a large glass room at the Lowe Art Museum recently. Curated by Lance Fung he wrote:  “It is a huge honor to be invited as guest curator for the new, six part exhibition series for the Project Room at the Lowe Art Museum.  Strategically placing Stitching the Gap as the inaugural exhibition will allow all visitors to walk through the artwork or see it glowing, like a beacon, throughout the evening.  I still recall my impression from my first studio visit and was amazed by the unique cross cultural material selection, conceptual rigor and social depth Alex embeds in all her work”. 

The size of the installation created by Miami based artist Alex Trimino, and her innovative use of her chosen materials, surprised the Opening Night audiences at the Lowe.  This multi-media Columbian born artist, uses her talents to knit, crochet and weave, geometrically intricate textures around metallic columns that intertwine the poles pinnacles. She also incorporates micro-controlled neon lights which imply the joining of past and present.

” My installations re-contextualize the traditional use of colloquial, lo-tech crafts; crochet, knitting and weavings exploring social views on civilization, technology and gender” said the artist about her works.

Diana Lowenstein Gallery is thrilled to announce the new, site-specific installation by artist Alex TRIMINO, ‘’STITCHING THE ‘GAP” which is presently on view at the Lowe Art Museum  and will be on view until January 29, 2023. For more information email the gallery at difa@lionstone.net
