ARTISTS

Kim Hutchison

My work has always looked to establish connections between the past and present. As an artist, I have become more focused on the formal qualities of my materials and compositions, my artwork’s relation to the passage of time becomes more complex and abstract.

Traditionally my work has involved the union of stitching, fabric, paint, and collage, guided by found and discarded objects still bearing the marks of the anonymous hands of their maker. These works focus on elements of handiwork such as crochet, quilt pieces, and sewing patterns, traditionally seen as a woman’s household work. By emphasizing form and materiality, I seek to let these elements reinvent their own context. The resulting compositions no longer carry the introspective, emotional weight of the past. Free of a specific narrative, these works instead invite the viewer to accept the found objects on their own terms. These pieces are about creating for the sake of creation and challenging myself through the use of materials at hand, in the process allowing the past to emerge as a site of present possibilities.

My recent works are still driven by the usage of found and remnant materials. Though the foundation of materials has evolved from primarily fabrics to wood and becoming more focused on assemblage construction, the premise of my work is still driven by creating via the discards of others, making use of the materials at hand. Finding inspiration and beauty in elements of cast offs and rebirthing them into new contexts.
