Rachel DuVall (b. 1985) is  a Los Angeles based textile artist making hand-woven wall-hangings. Each piece is built up line by line on her floor looms using linen colored with natural dyes. Her geometric compositions explore the grid structure inherent to weaving, the result of the warp and weft fibers intersecting. By using repetition of line and shape, the work investigates the relationship between the rigid framework required to produce a weaving and the flexible imperfect nature of the resulting material. Within this repetition the subtlest differences become amplified, such as the variation in tension of each hand-woven line, or subtle color shifts achieved with by hand dyed fibers.
