"As an artist, I am interested in quotidian objects from daily life – things that we interact with, use and consume that are often unnoticed. These things are place-markers; they hold value that others have put onto them, and they give us insight into our own identity and the communities that we take part in. These are items such as a set of keys, a lone Doritos chip, a soiled empty cardboard box, a moving blanket, a plaid shirt, a fried chicken drumstick, or a bottle cap. Through my work, I examine and rearticulate everyday objects, routines and communities, considering ways in which we can find common ground regardless of who we are and where we come from."
Recent MFA graduate Vaughan McMillan brings her first public art show to Phil&Sebastian. A fascinating mixture of hand prints and fabric sculpting, Vaughan will transform the cafe into a figurative feast!
