The needlepoint works of multi-disciplinary artist Cecilia Charlton synthesize the beauty and artistry of the decorative arts with the values and techniques of modernism. Looking back in order to move forward, Charlton finds inspiration in ancient patterns and designs which she hints at in such cryptic titles as “It might’ve been a walk-in spirit (according to my 72-year-old Peruvian roommate)”. Charlton is a masterful technician. Her rich tactile works weave the Simultanism of Sonia Delaunay with the geometric complexity of the textile works of Anni Albers. Rhythm, motion and depth – repetition and overlap. Cecilia Charlton’s art bestows an exquisite visual pleasure where medium and process result in pictorial forms that transcended time. At Thomas Jaeckel through November 13.
