relational abstraction : megan prince

I came across Megan Prince's work at the EFA Studios last weekend. This wall installation was quite stunning in person (made of string and nails). Her work seems to mostly be about personal relationships – she specifically refers to it as "relational abstraction." I'm fascinated by the use of materials like fiber and thread and her soft sculptures. I love all the weaving and interlocking. It reminds me of numerous woven materials I grew up around in the Philippines (though those are typically made of plant materials). These soft sculptures really beg to be touched and beautiful to look at.
