Our March 2017 Artist of the Month / by Trish Garrett Fox

Colorful Mesh Sculptures Add Texture to Any Wall...

“There is a great deal of serious play going on here! - And experimentation too – my science background I guess. I have inspirations naturally, like colors from a painting or the architecture of a bird nest, even whole cities – but it’s the material – the metal mesh that’s the greatest inspiration and creative challenge. I pleat, fold, fringe, wire, mold, gesso, paint, bead, sew, poke, twist by hand with simple tools to see what happens. As I make my discoveries they provide artistic building blocks – that’s when the real fun begins!”
