Jason Kriegler Exhibition

Tulum Treehouse
26.03.2021 - 20.08.2021

Tulum Treehouse welcomes our new exhibiting artist, Merida-based textile painter Jason Kriegler. Drawing influence from traditional textile design, Jason incorporates abstraction to create contemporary works that blur the lines between painting and textile art. His pared-down paper embroidery paintings suggest organic, biological forms but can also be experienced purely as abstracted combinations of shapes, line and texture.

Despite their simplicity, they have a captivating quality that reveals the complexity of hand embroidering onto paper, enlivened by a sense of depth that only seems to grow with continued examination. The exhibition runs for six months.
