Neha Vedpathak: Many moons, same sky opening reception Staff Pick

When: Sat., Sept. 7, 6-8 p.m. 2019
Price: Free
The creation of art can, at times, be rather tedious. But nothing appears to be as time-consuming as the art of “plucking,” the technique invented by India-born, Detroit-based artist Neha Vedpathak. The process consists of handmade Japanese paper and a pushpin, which Vedpathak then uses to separate individual paper fibers to create what looks like intricate loops of lace. Her finished works often involve saturating the plucked paper with paint and collaged together in large-scale, bold textural patchworks. Plucking has been embraced as a form of meditation for Vedpathak, who has paired the emotive process of her work with the rumination of living a life under the same sky as billions of other people. Many moons, same sky is on display through Oct. 26.
