This is a fascinating look at the evolution of craft as a fine art through the work of five contemporary artists. Precise explores the evolution of craft through the work of five contemporary artists who have helped expand its definition. While each artist addresses particular issues of politics, gender, environment, and history, all the works are linked by the involvement of the hand, the commitment of time and the dedication to precision. Despite the rampant integration of digital technology into all aspects of our lives, these artists remain committed to the direct involvement of the hand in the creation of unique pieces. Kye-Yeon Son's elegant silver compositions embody fragility and resilience. Greg Payce's practice considers the relationship between vessel and human. Jane Kidd's tapestries speak to human interaction with the world. Cal Lane's delicate metal sculptures raise questions about femininity/masculinity. Teresa Burrow's beaded creations speak to spirituality and social issues.
