Felted Gardens–Erma Martin Yost presents 20 art works included in Yost’s 2016 solo exhibition at Noho M55 Gallery in New York, NY. The hand-felted, resist-dyed, and stitched constructions evoke symbolic forms inspired by nature. These poetic metaphors reflect repeating patterns of planting, cultivating, harvesting–then lying dormant–only to rejuvenate and repeat the cycle again and again. In an introductory Essay Lois Martin writes, “Because of their quiet liveliness, Erma Martin Yost’s multi-layered fabric compositions almost seem to need to be watched rather than looked at. Like a glimpse of a forest out a window, or of a garden behind a gate, they play with geometric pattern against a kind of botanical profusion, and repay continual re-inspection, as nuances reveal themselves.” The 52-page catalog is a record of Yost’s complex and patient methods with a reverence for fine craft.
