Artist Talk: Quilter Coulter Fussell
The Halsey Institute at the College of Charleston welcomes quilter Coulter Fussell for an artist talk, January 18th at 2:00 PM. Her early-developed artsview perceives craft and other arts as indistinguishable from one another. Painting, sculpture, and textile work are one solitary entity in her mind. From youth, the combination developed into an unintentional mash-up, resulting in quilts and textile works that defy expectations of the medium. Fussell relies on the no-holds-barred nature of contemporary painting rules to free her compositions from the constraints of pattern. In turn, she simultaneously relies on the strict discipline of traditional craftwork to act as a self-editing tool. An opening reception for her current exhibition, The Raw Materials of Escape, will be held January 17th.
