Olive Stefanski (they/them or she/her) is an artist exploring the meeting between the astral and the material. In the artist’s work, the laborious processes of weaving, spinning, and dyeing become devotional practices through which they reckon with the existential reality of time and commune with the sacred, the mysterious, and the unknown. This practice is in alignment with a facet of Jewish art history related to intricacy and spirituality: elaborately laborious art as an indication of devotion to the infinite. Inspired by metaphysical experiences and text study, their work is offered as formal abstractions available for interpretation, sites of contemplation and journeying, markers of time, and as opportunities to wrestle with meaning-making.
