Shades of White
Durham Art Gallery
July - September 2018
Becky Comber, Lois Andison, Gina Duque, Svava Thordis Juliusson, Kristiina Lahde, Sung Ja Kim Chisholm, Nancy Anne McPhee, and Noelle Hamly
McPhee borrows imagery from the natural world by adapting the suckers of the octopus as the design motif for a body-sized white-on-white trapunto quilt that relies on the shadows created by the thread. Unsteady, it depends on the angle of the light and the position of the viewer for its effect. Her image spills out of its borders to become an un-quilt.
