Untitled Series employs cotton cords of varying sizes and consistencies, woven and tied together with distinct rectangular configurations. The suppleness and porousness of the cotton rope is self consciously without form or saturated color – an anti- painting. With these works Surdell reimagines the woven canvas as a space of undulation and growth — employing my body as a weaving shuttle, and my hand as brushstroke.
