The Art Of Lint And Cinnamon: new work by Marcy Chevali
Marcy Chevali is an artist who can make fascinating use of everything and anything. Her Lint Animal series fabricated curious figures knit with sewing thread stuffed with simple dryer fiber waste. Chevali will often incorporate ordinary household materials including thread, tea, sugar, turmeric, even wrapping cinnamon in paper to create layered juxtapositions which alter common perceptions. Her recent exhibition with the cutting edge Aferro Gallery involved an ambitious manipulation of mundane items into a time suspending installation titled The Edge Of Pause.
