The artist creates a series of unique, hand-painted antique rugs and allows the elements of New York City—its people, architecture, and weather—to impress upon them. The resultant fraying of the carpets leaves an abstract trace of man-made and natural elements. However, it’s difficult to discern responsibility: who or what left these traces, and to what degree? This anonymity between human and nature is on par with the anonymous fabricators of these antique rugs culled from the archive of Woven Accents.
