Poet Martha Lavinia Hoffman describes flowers as “bright little day stars scattered all over the earth.” Amanda McCavour lifts those stars up into the air in this exhibition, creating hovering constellations of colorful flora. The Toronto-based artist creates embroideries by stitching into water soluble fabric she then dissolves to leave only the stitching. This exhibition will include a brand new body of floral work in colored metal, also hanging from the CMA gallery ceilings to create an immersive environment.
This exhibition was organized by the Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia, South Carolina.
