Artist’s statement: “Working with fabric has been a common theme in my work for the better part of 4 years. In particular, striped folded fabric has been wrapped around my process the most – despite focusing on it for so long it always feels new to me. As I have developed my methods for painting like this, I am able to notice patterns and don’t require a reference photo like I used to. Although there are similarities in the ways that the imagined sheet of fabric folds, it will never be the same as the next time I imagine it to be dropped, folded, wrinkled and smooshed. It is fun to play a game with myself by imagining where the lines are hidden by a crease or overlap and following them from their start to their end. This piece, imagined for the side of Chip’s Vintage, takes up the whole space and doesn’t give any hint to where it starts or ends. We can imagine this sheet of fabric continues beyond the frame of the surface of the mural.”
