Talia Lefton works with wool, yarn, and fabric to create tangible explorations of identity, transformation, and space. This piece uses the mutable qualities of felt to depict a period of self-examination. Drawing from a mythical representation of shapeshifting, an internal experience is represented through external transformation. “Where it Comes From” incorporates two opposing forces and creates a moment at which these are in balance. This balance is the internal push and pull that motivates the search for purpose, contentment, and a deeper meaning to life.
