About Artist’s Work:
Virginia Mahoney’s garment-related forms reference the body, reflecting upon sensation, reaction, and thought with intricately rendered fabrications. Her objects reveal stories that are personal, yet communal, using text as a device to captivate, clarify, or confound. A complex assembly of commonplace processes and materials invokes both familiarity and wonder. The submitted works come from her “Shield” series, which sprang from our varied experiences during 2020, continuing into the present. They allude to the multiplicity of ways we create or experience separation from one another literally and symbolically, through real or imagined facades.
