Be Sure to Make Time for This Incredible Exhibit by China Marks
China Marks explores the tangled nature of social relationships and human imperfections through a singular irreverent visual iconography. Describing her work as “process-directed, constructed fabric drawings,” Marks draws with thread. Using commercially available printed fabric, an industrial zigzag sewing machine, a computerized embroidery machine, and a collagist strategy, Marks creates complex narratives that “reflect the world we live in all its glory, horror, and absurdity…”
Born and raised in Kansas City, MO, Marks was trained as a sculptor, earning an MFA from Washington University in St. Louis in 1976. Her work has been shown in galleries and museums in the United States and Europe. She has received numerous grants and fellowships, most recently a 2011 fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts, which named her a Gregory Millard Fellow, and a 2013 grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.
