Donna McCullough is an outstanding artist whose work can be seen at the superb Morpeth Contemporary in New Jersey. McCullough developed her admirable dress sculptures in the mid 90’s while she struggled to navigate the corporate arena.

These clever pieces contemplate a wide array of feminine themes by employing a fashion standard often associated with women. The recent Morpeth exhibition includes samples from the artist’s refined Drill Team series. McCullough’s tin outfits playfully exploit the notorious cheerleader stereotype, referencing infamous teams responsible for fueling a culture driven by oil.
