Meredyth Sparks is known for cutting and removing material from objects or appropriated images to emphasize spacial relationships. “Extraction”, as she calls the process, is a reflection on the political and visual relevance of images from a full range of origins, from subcultures and historical movements to the discourse surrounding labor and gender. The latter take center stage in a series of works commenting on early-20th-century events like the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, which, to Sparks, “signifies the emergence of the modern woman into the public realm.” Her glitter and aluminum foil-bedecked fusions of painting, collage, photomontage, and various other materials evoke textiles, knitting, and hand-woven fabrics.
