Now on view in the PNCA 157 Gallery: Better Than Nothing, the work of MA Critical Studies/MFA Visual Studies candidate Krista Anara Cibis!
Her exhibition, “Better Than Nothing” features works developed during her year long artist residence at Textile Hive. Textile Hive, located in Portland, is the worlds largest private textile archive. There are over 40,000 textiles collected by fashion designer, Andrea Aranow. During the residency, Krista was also able to work with Andrea in New York, giving the opportunity to study antique Peruvian Fiesta textile materials and construction in detail. This exhibition carries several lines of inquiry and represent only a portion of the works and themes developed during her residency.
Krista Anara Cibis is an artist/scholar based in Portland, Oregon. Her work is centered on observation and of communication and culture. Materials and techniques are important aspects of the works. The materials range from textile, organic, synthetic, or found objects, most recently that means, fencing masks, bees and cannula (oxygen hoses.) The medium and technique are integral to the meaning in her work.
