Megan & Taryn Slawson - Primitive Modern

About Megan Slawson
As an interdisciplinary artist, Megan Slawson experiments with a modern approach to transforming natural elements into abstract forms and objects. Her designs are simple interpretations of shapes and patterns inspired by the adornment rituals of primitive tribal cultures. As an artist she strives to create a raw yet refined aesthetic by incorporating natural materials, found objects, and hand crafted elements that embody a lack of uniformity.

About Taryn Slawson
Taryn Slawson experiments with a method of weaving that is based on the concept of synergy. Through a process of repetition and connection she creates pieces embodying the principle that 'the whole is greater than the sum of its parts'. She is self taught, creating her own style independent of traditional technique. Taryn utilizes simple shapes to achieve a sequence of complex patterns.She works almost exclusively with hemp fiber to create rugs and wall hangings defined by bold geometric designs.
