Lael Marshall
NY, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: These works are part of an ongoing series involving fabric. I am first drawn to an attribute of a woven cloth; whether it be the color, pattern, texture or transparency, and use one or more of these qualities as a starting point for my work. The addition of paint and / or glue, cutting and re-ordering of the material back together again, and addressing the natural tendency of the fabric to pull, torque or twist are all part of my involvement and process with these works. I have no singular method or mode of working; each piece must find it's particular solution.
