Trestle Gallery is proud to present the work of Lea Thomas in a solo exhibition, curated by Jennifer Simmons of DOPPELGÄNGER PROJECTS.
Lea Thomas is a New York-based fiber artist and musician. Originally from Maui, Hawaii, Lea’s work reflects on her unique perspective of the relationship between person and place. Informed by both academic and self-directed study in botanical sciences and traditional folk herbalism, Lea uses organic fibers and plant-based dyes to create weavings that celebrate the intelligence of the natural world. Specifically, Lea’s frequent use of indigo pigment is symbolic of her Japanese heritage, honoring a lineage of kimono makers and textile artisans in her immediate ancestry. Lea was an artist in residence at the Montello Foundation in Nevada in 2018.
