In the words of Jonathan Griffin, “The textile panels created by Margo Wolowiec depend on a push and pull between order and chaos, between the life of the mind and the work of the hand. Wolowiec prints digital images, scooped from the seemingly limitless sea of online media, onto partially woven polyester threads; she then unravels the threads and re-weaves them into textiles of her own devising. This reconstructive process allows her an extraordinary command over the surface, as if she were reassembling the very pixels in the original jpeg file.” Wolowiec has a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a MFA from the California College of the Arts. Her work is in the public collections of the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Kadist Art Foundation, San Francisco; and the Detroit Center for Photography. Her work has been included in exhibitions at the Museum of Craft and Design, San Francisco; di Rosa, Napa; and the Center for Performance Research, Brooklyn. Jessica Silverman Gallery presented a solo exhibition of Wolowiec’s work in April 2017. She lives and works in Detroit.
