Showcase 2017 : inspiration: marie watt
“We are received in blankets, and we leave in blankets.”
“Through my work, I gather stories that tether me to place and community.”
Marie Watt (b. 1967) is an American artist. Her work draws from history, biography, protofeminism, and Indigenous principles, and addresses the interaction of the arc of history with the intimacy of memory. She uses materials that are conceptually attached to narrative: in particular, exploring the stories connected with commonplace woolen blankets, cedar, and iron.
