DESCRIPTION

Quilted linen and canvas, pine and brass brad frame | 2022

Inspired by his midwest upbringing and created after a two-month residency in Norway, this series of textile works by Ethan Caflisch renders flattened, minimalist landscapes from various types of fabric. “the country i come from” simplifies the viewer’s perspective into distinct planes, as seams between bold colors create a horizon line. Also exploring color theory and abstraction, the woks invite the viewer to fill in the blanks about the vista upon which they gaze. Created after two months away from his sewing machine, the works are an outpouring of creativity and nostalgia about the constant pull of home.

“...still constantly remind myself of H.D. Thoreau’s quote “rather than love, than money, than fame; give me truth.” I think this is a crucial mentality to have as an artist, and any other profession; that success, by any definition, will be found in making honest work.”

EVA CHEN ON ETHAN CAFLISCH

“...WE WERE REALLY LOOKING FOR PIECES THAT SPOKE TO US AND MADE US PAUSE FOR A MOMENT TO ABSORB, APPRECIATE, AND REFLECT. CAFLISCH'S ART ABSOLUTELY HAD THAT EFFECT ON US.”
