|Judith Scott Untitled|
First: Judith Scott at Oakville Galleries
This exhibition satisfies as the maze of large plinths display the work well and invite the viewer to come close to the pieces. A chart on the wall of their drawn outlines informs us that they are all named "untitled" and were made between 1991 and 2004, the year before Judith Scott passed away.
The exhibition of Judith Scott's bundles continues until the end of this year.
|Sheila Hicks Perpetual Migration|
Again - wrapped forms. These tall narrow bundles are bamboo wrapped with cotton, wool, metal wire, linen and coins and are a small section of Sheila Hicks' large installation from 2015's Art Basel which dwarfed viewers at 14 feet x 40 feet.
Lares and Penates
1990 - 2013 Sheila Hicks
This method of displaying small circular bundles across a wall is very inspiring.
Her voice as so full of joy. You can hear her passion about the materials she explores.
Linen, cotton and synthetic, Sheila Hicks
This piece uses 'pony - tails- her own method. The artist puts long pieces of soft linen threads together and then binds them tightly and neatly with bright threads.
A book devoted to this body of small works is precious.

Include rather than ignore and exclude
Always carry a pencil, paper and camera.'
