Wearable Structures materialize our daily struggle between control and chaos. The balance is precarious and can tip one way or another in an instant.Â Building materials traditionally used to construct living environments or other architectural securities are used in a frenetic fashion.Â Quickly, and maybe hopelessly trying to impose order on a situation that is moving out of control.Â The traditional role of structure or stability becomes mobile when placed on the figure allowing the individual to indulge in the illusion of stability.Â The mobile/wearable element of the work further subverts attempts of control and order. Â Similar to the way water will carve a new path around an obstruction, participant finds new ways to move about daily routines in ordinary fashion.
A SFA Scholarship and Teaching grand allowed Featherstone to travel to Ghana, West Africa in order to initiate a body of sculptural work dealing with the theme of personal environment. The language of home such as furniture, textiles, and construction is used to express the awkward, fragile, and tenuous hold on stability and structure in her work. The sculptures, wearable or free-standing, are frenzied attempts to create order from an ultimately unpredictable surrounding.
Tracy Featherstone lives and has a working studio in Hamilton, OH. She earned a BFA from the University of Cincinnati and a MFA from the University of Arizona. In 2006 she received an Ohio Arts Council Grant for Creative Excellence. Featherstone works individually as well as collaboratively with artists Krista Connerly, Denise Burge, Jenny Ustick, and Lisa Siders.
