Emerging artist Nevada Tribble, from Elkins, WV, creates thread drawings and paper sculptures to reimagine hope and familiarity. She is a recent graduate of Shepherd University, in Shepherdstown, WV.
Nevada says “My work is about hope, and how it is manifested in the past and present of my surroundings. I like to imagine memory as a residue that sticks to things, giving them a tangible and subjective history. In my work I capture the things that remind me to hope, the things with layered memories of what is good, and the moments that make up those memories.
“I use a sewing machine as a drawing tool, moving my paper under the needle as I stitch to make marks with the thread. Sewing has been a part of my life for a long time as a practical skill. I like that it references that practicality as a drawing medium, alluding to the power to mend and alter.”
