About

"Chicken" is an original crocheted sculptural work by Caitlin McCormack made of crocheted cotton string, vintage fabric, glue, gesso steel pins, and velvet. The artwork measures 10.5”h x 13.5”w x 3.5”d framed. Caitlin McCormack received a BFA in Illustration in 2010 from the University of the Arts (Philadelphia, PA). She currently lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. McCormack has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. Select gallery exhibitions include Vanilla Gallery, Tokyo; Last Rites Gallery, NYC; Red Truck Gallery, New Orleans; Spoke Art, San Francisco; Jonathan Levine Projects, Jersey City; Antler Gallery, Portland; Stephen Romano Gallery, Brooklyn; La Luz de Jesus, Los Angeles; Paradigm Gallery + Studio, Philadelphia; Cotton Candy Machine, Brooklyn, amongst others. Her work has been presented in several museum shows including The Taubman Museum of Art, Roanoke; The Morbid Anatomy Museum, Brooklyn; and The Mütter Museum, Philadelphia; as well as Museum Rijswijk, Rijswijk NL. Trained in illustration, McCormack creates sculptures utilizing garments and discarded objects that she views as extensions of human identity. This series takes a more perverse, grotesque turn for the artist, incorporating materials with a more sinewy and oily texture. Chaining together disintegrated cloth and textile materials coated in enamel paint, she creates abstract sculptural works that occasionally reference the human form.
