Christine Meuris’ work translates traditionally home-based arts executed in fabric and fiber into works on and of paper. In this way, her work pushes against the barrier erected between art and craft, home and gallery – a barrier often rooted in class and gender. She uses these traditions to express a wide range of thoughts just as women always have. In the Stress Fracture series she explores environmental anxiety by breaking up the tidy mandala, symbol of mental balance and wholeness, evoking images of cracking polar ice.
