Sculpted from thousands of pieces of wire hooked and looped together, each of Kristine Mays’ garments embodies a fleeting gesture or expression that delivers a message of strength while challenging how we view ourselves and others. An invisible occupant revealed through the sculpted folds and wrinkles of a garment. A strong female spirit shines forth in the dichotomy of what is revealed. The work speaks to identity— the question of who we are and what we can do with our lives, the impact our lives have on the world.
