Not Much About You: a painting series by Ayin Es

Mixed media paintings using garment patterns, sewing, and textiles.

"Los Angeles based artist Ayin Es thoughtfully meditates on memories of [their] fragile past and literally mends those reconstituted images together with thread directly on the canvas. [Their] art practice is a deeply intimate collage of memory as Es incorporates pattern paper, thread, and paint onto a single surface. [Their] works utter [their] story of her unusual childhood...

"...The dialogue between the paper form, the paint, and the stitching signal a laborious methodology and speak to Es's ability to transform materials elements of the past into an entirely unpredictable and new present."
