"The woven pattern imitates wood grain while adhering to the structural rules of weaving. I draw influence from colonial overshot, a pattern style associated with homespun coverlets of the 18th and 19th centuries. I consider the way we value original hardwood floors in homes for their authenticity and quality and compare this with the cultural value of handwoven textiles."

Sophia DeJesus-Sabella (b. 1997) is an artist, weaver, and educator based in Hartford, Connecticut. Her woven and sculptural works interrogate class, gender, queerness, and utility by combining traditional craft with found construction materials.
