Matthew Rachman Gallery is pleased to announce the next exhibition of its 2017 lineup, “The Fantastic Nest,” which features works by Australian artist, Kate McCarthy.  The Gallery will host an opening reception Friday, June 2 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. The artist will be in attendance.

Human comfort, nesting, and personal expression rely heavily on the use of fabric, design, and their intrinsic tactile qualities.  With embroidery at the cornerstone of “The Fantastic Nest,” McCarthy uses stitching as a narrative tool throughout her body of work.  Chairs hint at rest, conversation, and repose.  The pillowy, fantastical figures are a wonder begging to be squished, touched, and adored.  The visceral reactions to her works are representational of all things that are fantastically human.

 

Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Sunday 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
