Jason Greenberg’s Continuous Thread is an ongoing exploration of the thread and its accumulation within textile art. For his thesis, Jason has been heavily researching Jewish textiles, the ancient murex snail-derived ‘biblical blue’ pigment, ritual processes within Judaism, and their translations to himself. Handwoven works are created in response to various Jewish motifs and prayer shawls. The embroidery on canvas pieces
includes abstract forms of the human body merged with imagery inspired by Judaic manuscripts. Embroidery on Solvy is used to create garments completely out of thread in the Tekhelet color; stemming from the ancient garments of the high priest.
