AN EXHIBITION BY ANITA HAWKINS & AMY UNGRICHT
CHASE HOME MUSEUM
NOVEMBER 18, 2022 – JANUARY 13, 2023
The artworks in this exhibition focus on different subject matter, referencing art history and nature, but share a similar formal quality, with their use of mixed media and the line. Anita Hawkins’s work uses crochet—considered a feminine and domestic art medium–in pieces that respond to Abstract Expressionism, shifting the lens of art history to a feminist perspective. Amy Ungricht’s work references symbiotic relationships in nature, mycorrhizal networks, and geologic time, examining non-human time and communication methods in nature. Both of these artists reject mainstream concepts of history and craft.
