Ashley Blalock fuses craft and fine art to create objects an d site-specific installations inspired by everyday artifacts from the femal e domestic sphere. She uses the meditative process of crochet to explore th emes of discomfort and coping mechanisms used to provide solace from the st ress and trauma of modern life.

\n

Blalock's site-specific installatio n\, Keeping Up Appearances\, consists of vibrant red forms nailed to the wall that are actually giant crochet doilies. Although non-threateni ng and quaint in a domestic setting\, in the gallery and at this scale the forms overtake the viewer and cover the walls.
