Wearable Structure: Yellow Pod
Tracy Featherstone is an Associate Professor of Art at Miami University. A SFA Scholarship and Teaching grand allowed Featherstone to travel to Ghana, West Africa in order to initiate a body of sculptural work dealing with the theme of personal environment. The language of home such as furniture, textiles, and construction is used to express the awkward, fragile, and tenuous hold on stability and structure in her work. The sculptures, wearable or free-standing, are frenzied attempts to create order from an ultimately unpredictable surrounding.
