Raggedy Man | Jade Pegler
August 26, 2022 - October 1, 2022
Tap the PLAY arrow, then use your mouse to wander towards the windows at the rear of the gallery for Jade Pegler’s exhibition in Gallery 2.
A tulpa is an imagined being brought to life – as simulacra they are made rather than born. The faces of RAGGEDY MAN are not quite human, rather they are products of imagination. Though strange and even monstrous they offer the comfort and familiarity of the rag doll. Fabric is stained with pigments bound with soy, patched and layered in a collage-like process, then stitched and quilted by hand and machine. Thread binds the works together, filling mouths and eyes as though revealing inner structure or masking something secret. Like time-worn puppets or masks they mutely await animation.
