Chantal Mahoney’s work calls to attention the underlying issues of a seam line. The world, our life, is full of seams. Seams that split and bind, open and stitch gaps, they can mend tears. They are a border, borders that are transient, enduring, expanding and ever-changing. Seams can be ripped, resewn in a new composition, ripped yet again and then remade. Mahoney’s work explores her interest in the natural world, history and processes, combining them with a purposeful direction in her material choices.
