Another Global City

 
 

Textiles have become increasingly significant in Lanzetta’s work for their ability to act as metaphors for current economic/political migration and exchanges inherent in an environmentally fragile, globalized world of religious and cultural cacophony. Lanzetta’s new textile-based work have been developed in tandem with a Fulbright Fellowship to research historic and contemporary art and textile methodologies in India, Singapore and Thailand (2016-19) These textile-based works also reference Lanzetta’s own inventory of painting and color lexicons. The wide ranging silkscreened or stamped motifs incorporate a personal canon: a thirty year “library” of syncretic patterns reflecting both physical and metaphoric global explorations.
