Caitlin McCormack received a BFA in Illustration in 2010 from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia PA. She lives with two cats in South Philly and crochets to forget the world, in the chaos of her slovenly, nest-like studio.
Caitlin explains her work by saying, “The material out of which my work is composed acts as an alchemical conduit between the garment and the clothesline; it acknowledges the latter as a symbol of the ancestry and familiar bonds which have greatly informed my work. I wish to give the impression that a garment has disintegrated and reformed itself in the image of a tenacious animal’s remains, representative of both the persistence of memory and the significance of cloth and thread in the realm of human experience.”
