|Gary Markle, Conical Fields 1998-2000|
Soft was an exhibition of textile-based work by Gary Markle, Anna Torma, Colette Whiten, Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky from the Mount Saint Vincent University collection, curated by Katie Belcher and held in the upper MSVU art gallery. A pocket-sized catalogue complete with essays and colour photographs accompanied the exhibit. MSVU is located in Halifax, Nova Scotia and I caught the show just before it ended in mid-August.
Conical Fields was constructed with orange velvet and stuffed with foam chips. He was inspired by the work of Naoko Furue, Elspeth Pratt, Martha Townsend, and Yayoi Kusama.
