The tension of mediums collides in a multi-media tangle all asking the same question: utility or non-utility? Painting, sculpture, screenprinting, embroidery, crafts. The avenues as well: embroidery hoops, stretcher bars, fabrics and clothing, zines and papergoods. Trained as a painter, Penny Spencer (turned fibers artist, aka Madam Chino) has been colliding, joining, and bending mediums and avenues into somewhat strange features. Bound by the terms of social accessibility, utility rules the majority of work produced. The underlying urge to create forces its way through an expectant room, leaving evidence of its unruly nature in completely unusable forms. Narratives that leave viewers wondering who and what=for?
