brenda mallory | Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) Calendar | July Featured ARTIST
Brenda Mallory’s mixed-media sculptural works are comprised of a variety of materials including cloth, fibers, beeswax, and found objects. By creating multiple forms that are joined with crude hardware that imply tenuous connections or repairs, her work addresses ideas of interference and disruption in long-established systems of nature and human cultures.
Mallory lives in Portland, Oregon but grew up in Oklahoma and is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation. She holds a BA in Linguistics & English from UCLA and a BFA from Pacific Northwest College of Art.
Title of work: to make whole
The July calendar features Brenda’s work, To Make Whole, a 5.5′ x 9′ wax saturated fabric on wire structure. As mentioned above, Brenda is interested in disruption and repair. Disruptions occur at many levels—in personal lives and families, and in large systems such as human communities, cultures, or the global environment. But disruption doesn’t necessarily mean destruction. Something that is damaged and subsequently repaired holds more information than in its pristine form. Sometimes it is stronger, sometimes weaker, sometimes even more beautiful, but never the same. She likes to see repairs, mends, the evidence of struggle, the healing act of pulling order from chaos.
