Iceland Goes Through: the art of conversation

Iceland Goes Through
- 1950s woven cotton upholstery, 60s gingham dress, 60s curtains, 
80s paisley upholstery

... one of several textiles I've laid out during phone conversations with friends.  In these works, the present moment is considered as much a material as the fabric; there is a natural interweaving of dialogues--internal and external, fabrics and friendship. During this particular conversation, a friend who is an avid soccer fan was telling me about the rise of Iceland, the Cinderella team in the Euro 2016 tournament.  As she recounted each win, she would say 

"...and so, Iceland goes through."
