> DESCRIPTION

Living by sheer circumstance through events large and small, over time we envelope ourselves with the shroud of our cultural influences.

Thru the filter of my own experience as a white female born in1950′s America, I explore themes of assumed entitlements, homogenization, marginalization, and human obsolescence – social divides we’ve come to accept as normal cultural paradigms.

In questioning this acceptance, I recognize the insignificant – marginalized found objects and disenfranchised people. Driven by a desire to make right, the exhibition reflects my own handwork, but also orchestrates handwork of homeless individuals.

In this inaugural season, and after our experience of last 4 years of a historic administration, this show presents an examination of our place in history, our sense of lost entitlement and contemplates how we’ve become a product of our society’s headlines.

The work in this exhibition exploits traditional fiber techniques as conceptual tools for aesthetic, social
communication to examine a society of which we are all a part – as bystanders, participants, victims and perpetrators.
