This piece comes from a series of still life paintings Caitlin MacBride has done of fabric draped in her studio. Created from careful observation, her lush depiction calls attention to the seams and folds of the material—pondering its transformation from two-dimensional textile to three-dimensional form. Using a variety of bright colors, the work’s composition plays with ambiguity as it shuttles between the abstract and the representational. MacBride notes that, “the fragments play a role as a solid point of departure that then leads into a place of personalized improvisation.” –Courtesy of The Kitchen
