“I often find the middle a lot more interesting than the end.”
Heather Morton is a local artist and designer whose current exhibition at kwartzlab highlights the process of her work. While there are a few “finished” works on display, the installation celebrates the journey of the making process. Beauty and inspiration can be found in a few scrap of materials, thoughtfully pieced together.
“I’ve always loved colour so I began to use fabric the way one might use paint; I liken my over-sized fabric stash to paint; each fabric is a “paint colour” so I have trouble throwing anything out. Most of my finished pieces are practical items (bags, costumes, quilts), so most of the work I still have are the experiments in between.”
We welcome you to join Heather next Tuesday, March 12th at kwartzlab where she will do a short artist talk about her work, starting around 8pm. Heather’s work will be on display in the lab until the end of the month.
