Melissa Joseph’s textile-based practice synthesizes diverse processes and inspirations with her intuitive responses to archival images and found materials. Conflicting Truths features wall-mounted, shallow relief, and sculptural artworks that highlight Joseph’s exploration of varied media, including both wet- and needle- felted wool, raw dupioni silk, stoneware, and linen pulp. Her practice also incorporates strategies adapted from painting, sari draping, weaving, and even her parents’ way of furnishing her childhood home.
Artist's talk: Thursday, March 16, 4:30 PM, LPAC Cinema, gallery reception follows from 5:30-7:00 PM
