Laura Marsh’s oeuvre is woven in the intimacy of a memory, a family history. Seasoned in the craft and industry of the act of sewing – a tradition in her family that spans two generations – Marsh has developed a body of textile work that reflects her here-and-now. Best known for her pennants, with their inimitable visual presence, vibrant colors, trenchant phrases, and textile patterns that activate landscapes of memory, Marsh values textile as language and gesture.
