Curator’s Notes

‘Engulfed By The Hills’ by Jessica Phippen is a soft landscape punctuated by stitches. Almost a Morse code of texture, creating impressions of rolling green hills, aqua waterways, warm toned paths, and a tiny sliver of blue sky surrounded by grey stormclouds. It’s a landscape one feels the urge to hug. To squeeze tight and say it’s going to be okay. To receive comfort from. Are we comforting the land, or is the earth comforting us?
