A little more about the artist:
Gina Phillips is a New-Orleans based artist who works with textiles. Her artwork varies from near life-size, cutout depictions of trees, to larger-than-like portraits of people and animals to complex abstractions composed of thread, fabric, and paint. She intertwines art and life in rich narratives sewn with the roots of memory and identity. A decade after having moved from Kentucky to New Orleans to earn her MFA at Tulane University, Phillips new home was severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina. Searching for new tools with which she could resume life as an artist, she discovered the long-arm quilting machine. In her search for reclaiming her home, Phillips artwork provokes ideas of nostalgia, overcoming difficulty, and connecting to ones community.
We hope to see you all there!
