“Mulling over the language of textiles, the word textile comes from the latin textere which means 'to weave'. The characteristic structure of interwoven or intertwined threads, is what make up a textile fabric. While creating the series 'Eroding Tapestries Bust Out Beautiful Threads', during a time fraught with political, environmental, and pandemic upheaval, this is my oddly hopeful perspective for the future.” — Gail Tarantino
