Virtual Lecture - All Together Now



Working with repurposed materials to create textile-based pieces, I

contrast the often menacing and aggressive counterculture components

of skateboarding, punk/metal music, and the occult with the comforts of

domesticity. This collision of traditional quilting techniques with elements

tied to the fringes of society re-envisions the story of the material through a softer lens.

The reclaimed fabrics used in my work contain a multitude of personal

histories and everyone’s unexplained stain, tear, or rip is included. These

salvaged pieces are sewn into a larger narrative and become a part of a

collective history within the work. The fragility of the materials and their

assaulting imagery are brought together in the form of a functional piece of Art.

This lecture will be recorded.
