Mallory Weston

Philadelphia based Mallory Weston, turns Lisa Frank tween culture on its head, creating over the top wearable versions of the graphic imagery that pervades pop culture communication. Weston clashes extremes by pairing digital icons with meticulous stitching and intensive hand labor, rendering a knife blade flaccid and decorative, or by enveloping a giant gold heart with spikes. Mallory dissects the digital age through the act of making. She draws forth the full spectrum of emotionality and experience, examining what we sacrifice for instant gratification.
