MFA Thesis Exhibition: Jacquelyn Bolton "Conceal Reveal"
On View: March 31-April 6
Reception: March 31, 5-7 p.m.
Jacquelyn Bolton’s work is rooted in the human condition using the materiality of textile and fiber arts and its connection to spirituality. The human condition, as she understands it, is the state of being a person complete with a mind, body, and spirit. This includes all the experiences a person encounters in life—birth, growth, aging, conflict, love, loss, grief, injury, relationships, trauma, rejection, joy, acceptance and so on. The human condition answers the question: What does it mean to be a person? We are in flux. This ever-changing aspect of “being” is captured in the inherent qualities that are found in the layers of new and vintage textiles embedded with life, growth, strength, variety, and texture throughout her work. She adds to this material experience by combining processes such as sewing, crocheting, embroidery, and weaving which can be seen as wall hangings and vessel forms.
