About In Love.
Love is an intense feeling of deep affection. Love is a great pleasure or interest in something. Love is a deep affection for someone or something. Love is something you like or enjoy very much.
In this selection of works inspired by Martha Padron's ink on paper that reads "Love is charming," I chose pieces that showed connection, embrace, touch, as well as vessels that can hold. Literal knots in weavings, clay and glaze, pencil on pencil, and images of togetherness embrace a deep want for connection. I hope these works give the viewer a pause to connect with what they are seeing.
