China Marks explores the tangled nature of social relationships and human imperfections through a singular irreverent visual iconography. Describing her work as “process-directed, constructed fabric drawings,” Marks draws with thread. Using commercially available printed fabric, an industrial zigzag sewing machine, a computerized embroidery machine, and a collagist strategy, Marks creates complex narratives that “reflect the world we live in all its glory, horror, and absurdity…”
