Mark Newport: Mending
February 24, 2017 - May 20, 2017
Mark Newport returns to form & concept for a solo exhibition that cuts to the heart of the Michigan textile artist’s practice. Mending features torn muslin cloths with meticulously embroidered patches, a symbol of the scars that life etches on the body and psyche. “This series explores the idea of repair and scarring,” says Newport. “I was a very accident-prone child. I have some scars.” Mending opens on Friday, February 24, 5-7 pm and runs through May 20, 2017.
