true value

Friday, February 03, 2012

A very intricate work by Tricia Wright created by making one dot at a time in a sheet of paper. Reminds me of the beautiful crochet doilies my mom makes. A very long, slow process but one that delivers such amazingly delicate results.






"This is a series of small, intimate works on paper. They are pinhole drawings, made by pricking the design through the reverse of the paper. The drawings themselves reference lace, doilies and other decorative materials closely associated with the domestic realm, and into these I embed prosaic, assertively functional household objects and component parts. The series examines the relationship between decoration and function, and the value judgments attached to each; and it looks at the dichotomy between perception and reality that permeates the lives of ordinary women. The title for this series—True Value—is a direct reference to the chain of hardware stores where I buy my materials, and underscores the questions driving the work."
