Make.Shift Gallery is excited to announce our first exhibition of 2020! “Eat Your Heart Out” features two Bellingham-based artists who incorporate textiles into captivating meditations on intimacy and community.
Bridgett St. Meave is a European-born self-taught artist who currently calls Bellingham home. She creates multimedia soft sculptures of anatomical human hearts. These tender and textured pieces are hand sewn using all recycled materials. When speaking of her art, the artist often quotes the beloved comic Calvin and Hobbes: “My work is utterly incomprehensible and therefore it is full of deep significance.”
Cecilia Karoly-Lister is an Alaskan-born artist currently working in Bellingham where she received her BFA in painting. Her series “cotton mouth” incorporates draped fabric into oil (more) paintings of humans eating their own clothing. These paintings invite the viewer to critically consider the elevated status of clothing in defining gender, while chronicling the emotional struggle, acceptance, and eventual delight in finding one’s body as home.
