Madison and Matthew Creech - This Must Be the Place
Monday, December 4, 2017 to Friday, January 26, 2018
Madison Simmons Creech, a 2010 TMFD textile and fashion design graduate, and her husband Matthew Creech's collaborative works present common experiences in contemporary society as emblematic of pop culture nostalgia. Their imagery is a mix of lowbrow idiosyncrasies and pop icons, mashed together to create lighthearted, digitally-manipulated quilts conditioned by political and melancholic undertones. The artist couple uses fabrication to manipulate visual information that is derived from the collective consciousness.
