Summer Rezeli

Raleigh, NC

Summer Rezeli’s work begins with everyday materials: fabric, thread, yarn, and wool roving. Through meticulous, labor-intensive gestures it transcends the mundane to become ethereal. The small, repetitive actions bear some semblance to penance, but more than that they are a labor of love for the earth and for the craft of what she does. The result is a preservation of not only Rezeli’s¬†experience in a place, but a preservation of a space at risk of extinction now more than ever in a world filled with people too eager to destroy and consume.
