Fay Stanford, Fiber Optics: Woodcuts on Cotton
Philadelphia printmaker Fay Stanford showed her fabulist banners within two galleries.
Stanford creates wry fairy tales about suburban family life — especially death, disease and aging. Her work on dementia has been called “an eye opener” and “an outstanding achievement.” (Philadelphia Inquirer, 2011).
Since the early 2000s, Stanford has transitioned from painter to printmaker. This is her first show executed entirely on fabric — a process in which she carves on wood, prints on cotton cloth, and sews her creations into quilt-like banners.
