About

Ebstein’s wall-bound pieces, presented as painting, are made with hand-cut yoga mats and powder-coated aluminum forms bolted to the image’s picture plane. Gaps between the pieces of mat reveal the painting beneath the collaged surface and emphasize the imperfect presence of the hand.

After being diagnosed with glaucoma, Ebstein found she could no longer practice yoga. The move to mats as material in her pieces started as a physical act of separation. Acting as a synthetic proxy for the body, the pieces participate in a consideration of the body in design, a simultaneous absence/presence of functionality and the standard assumed proportions it serves.
