Welcome to the artwork of Lindsay Ketterer Gates. This, slightly obsessive, mixed media work springs from a background and love of fiber techniques combined with a curiosity for all things purchased in bulk. Random industrial materials are combined with tedius hand-manipulated wire looping to mimic, or simply give a nod to, beloved textile accents, patterns and details. The hard, industrial washers, joiner busicuits, cotter pins, etc. start to read as soft elements. The detail of Celestial Navigation shown on this page was inspired by a simple button hole in a piece of clothing. So welcome! Thanks for taking the time to stop by, browse and enjoy.
