    When we hear the term "weaving," we tend to think in terms of mats or baskets — not wall-hangings. But that’s the exactly what CalArts-trained L.A. artist Hadley Holliday’s intricately patterned acrylic paintings are. Woven. Sort of.

    Each one builds on the idea of interlocking shapes and forms, and the end product is a serious sight to behold. Holliday’s handcrafted creations take one general color and, in a series of sculpted ripples, create abstract, fluid forms that force the viewer to confront positive and negative space, busy movement, serene reflection, mythical origins, and modern creation.

    The artist's newest series, fittingly named “Warp and Weft,” will debut at Taylor De Cordoba this Saturday. The space will host an opening reception for the artist that evening. Peep Holliday’s work in person, but click through here, to get a little sneak peek of the kaleidoscope canvases before you head out. See you there?

    When: February 25, 6 p.m to 8 p.m
    Where: Taylor De Cordoba, 2660 South La Cienaga Boulevard (at Cullen Street), 310-559-9156.
