Perfect imperfect: Brent Wadden weaves new works for his first UK solo show

Ali Morris , Wallpaper, September 29, 2015
Trained as a painter but introduced to weaving in Berlin in 2004, Canadianborn

artist decided three years ago to ditch paint entirely in favour of yarns. Each of his dazzling artworks is composed of individual geometric panels that are painstakingly woven by hand, on backstrap and floor looms from second-hand and leftover fibres. Stretched over raw canvas in graphic compositions, the abstract works that Wadden creates are characterised by their wobbly lines and errors. They are a celebration of the imperfect.
