Story on my work at Women's Studio Workshop

Thank you Kathryn for this lovely article! She really does a beautiful job of summing up my artistic work, as well as the work I made at Women's Studio Workshop, and that's is not an easy task. You can read it here.
Removed from their normal context, materially transformed, and simplified to their basic shapes, Christine’s vegetables become a puzzle to the viewer. The squash is now a sunburst; the mushroom, a star; and the onion becomes a flower lined in red stitching marks. Though Christine may not ask viewers to literally follow her patterns and stitch together their food, she certainly challenges them to analyze the shapes, the radial symmetry, and the visual language of pattern making to reassemble the produce mentally.
