Hang Outs... West Hollywood, CA
"Here Comes Purple"
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 22, 2012 6pm-9pm
On View: September 22 - October 20, 2012
In her third solo with New Image Art, Whitmarsh will exhibit sculpture, wall pieces and giant fabric collage.
Working primarily in textiles, her re-fabrication of cultural and personal ephemera results in a rueful yet bold kind of Pop art. Whitmarsh seeks to make her process seen in the work itself. A process that views failure and success as coexistent. Her work acknowledges the repetitiveness of culture yet still finds a compulsion to create, to be original, and to seek meaning; even if this meaning is arbitrary, personal or constantly shifting. The work is both a window opening onto these questions and evidence of her compulsions.
