I am honored that my pieces Cat Throne and Chandelier have beed included in Pattern, Crime & Decoration, features the groundbreaking, artist-led American art movement Pattern & Decoration, which started in the mid-1970s and lasted until mid-1980s. Often viewed as the last organized art movement of the 20th century. In retrospect, it can now be viewed as a forerunner for many art currents that followed, with its use of deconstructed, loose shapes, interest in non-Western art, dazzling colors and mixed patterns used to reject the patriarchal, Eurocentric framework of modernism as embodied in Adolf Loo's essay Ornament and Crime. Previously in Geneva Switzerland, it's continuing at Le Consortium in Dijon,  France-the New York Times has called it, "The Under-the-Radar French Museum That  Quietly Predicts Art's Next Big Thing."  I hope you can make it. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/21/t-magazine/art/consortium-dijon-wade-guyton-laure-prouvost.html

"By bringing these artists together, this exhibition shows these different aspects through significant work by each artist. Beyond the pattern, it also reveals the place of the object via the works of Jennifer Cecere and Betty Woodman, whose ceramics are associated with a style of painting rich in decorative forms and a Matisse-like palette"-Romain Mathieu, Pattern Decoration and Crafts, art press 462

My work aims to integrate the flavor of domestic handiwork into the public sphere. Cat Throne and Chandelier, hono sanctioned outlets for female creativity. More info on the exhibition. https://www.leconsortium.fr/en/pattern-crime-decoration
