Textile Sculpture by Trish Smith

Trish Malcomess

What drives me as an artist is my concern for the human condition and finding inspiration in the resilience of human nature.
Emotional in nature, my interdisciplinary practice expresses fragility, isolation, fragmentation and compartmentalization, while inspecting the phenomenon and social mechanisms of sexual predation developed and established by society through sophisticated social and cultural practices. My work often employs fabric as a metaphorical structure to hang meaning on.
Through my practice, It is my hope to initiate meaningful dialogue surrounding sexual exploitation, its effects and the structures that enable it to exist.
