Animated by an interest in fables and folklore, Christina Forrer’s vibrant weavings explore the depths of human emotion. While many of her works showcase dramatic moments of explosive conflict, the grouping presented here focuses on more private anxieties and internal tensions. These weavings and watercolors showcase Forrer’s signature representational style, featuring fantastical characters with cartoonish features rendered with a keen attention to boldness of color and richness of pattern.
