Maggy Rozycki Hiltner

Red Lodge, MT

 

I’ve tasked myself with questioning the artifacts of my culture by changing their context and content. Working with handmade remnants of the past, I repurpose them to comment on the present. The history of a quilt pattern as well as its geometric pattern is contrasted with the wild color and billowing abundance of found embroidery and the solemn beauty of the skeleton in linen. Working in found materials, I employ a multitude of anonymous assistants.  I try to celebrate and elevate their abandoned handwork.
