March 2018. New Works on Fabric and Paper, using Indigo and Cyanotype.
In her March show at TEN Gallery, Sarah Marshall exhibits a series of dyed fabrics and paper works that have been variously printed, deconstructed, assemblaged, and stitched together. The effect of dyeing with both Indigo and Cyanotype produces an almost digital luminosity. This visual affect, combined with the physical tactility and disciplined craft of the work itself, results in a collection of vital and refined objects. The work ranges from abstract to iconographic, and evokes traditional crafts of quilting, tapestry, and even tie-dye, all united under Marshall’s encompassing sensitive and thoughtful aesthetic.
