Elizabeth Hohimer is an artist from Texas, born in 1991. She received her BFA in Textiles from the California College of the Arts. Her work is bound through an intersection of skilled tradition and a contemporary dialog between materials, memory and self.
Hohimer works primary with her two European floor looms to create Woven Paintings. These works along with her steel and agave fiber soft sculptures represent harnessed feelings from immersing oneself in a color, place or emotion.
The suspended passage of time that takes place where the horizon line is visible is seeped in Hohimer's work and life. Her woven paintings carry in them the lingering atmospheric notion of nostalgia for place due to the materials she chooses to employ. Her studio practice is build behind the inherent trust that materials embody emotion provided by sublime places. Process choices within production give time and space for the artist to re-harmonize dissonance, gaining potency. A sense of ethereal, allegorical, philosophical tendencies that are not grounded or interested in reality of the present float through her work.
