How do we interpret our bodies? How do envision the women we love?
.
Thinking a lot about old work this summer, like this piece, ‘S(mother)’ from 2016. A mix of sculpture, painting, and quilting — this piece was constructed using an old quilt my mother made as the base. By exposing the backing of the quilt (the side that would be bed-facing/against the body) the viewer is confronted with the vulnerability of the body. Quilts are passed through the family, often between women— mothers create soft and comforting blankets for their daughters, these comforts are then passed down through generations; in this work quilting, which has traditionally been women’s craft, is repositioned as sculpture, as painting, as high-art, as body.
