Exhibition Description

A graduate of UNO’s art program and a current artist-in-residence at Lincoln’s Lux Center for the Arts, McKenzie Phelps explores the relationship between traditional and contemporary conceptions of femininity. Quilts represent a traditional feminine art form, and act as symbols of comfort, safety, and nostalgia. At the same time, they represent an era of outdated and oppressive views about women. Expressing this ambivalence through patchwork, McKenzie challenges these feelings and renders faceless nude figures that are frankly pretty and pornographic at the same time, all in a palette dominated by pink.
