Marsha Wineman: BACK STITCHED
May 2, 2019 – May 31, 2019.
BACK STITCHED by Marsha Wineman is an exhibition of life drawings in which thread replaces ink or graphite in drawings that are stitched in cloth. Different than line laid on a surface such as paper, translating the drawing to thread gives it much physicality or a ‘haptic’ quality that is at once tactile and visual.
Marsha Wineman is a Toronto artist who received her MFA at The School of the Art institute of Chicago. Wineman’s creative work explores art made through the application of sewing skills used as mark-making or construction devices. She had been the technician for the School of Fashion at Seneca College where she continued amassing textile procedures. Her most recent works combine life drawing and embroidery.
She has been a member of several arts boards and is active as a member of the Contemporary Canadian Art Collection at Seneca College where she advises toward acquisition and site placement. She has been the recipient of numerous awards from Canada and Manitoba Arts Councils and is in many private and public art collections.
