MEGAN WITMARSH

Working predominantly with textiles, Los Angeles-based artist Megan Whitmarsh uses hand-stitched embroidery to fabricate replicas of personal and cultural ephemera. Although she also creates comic books, paintings, drawings and stop animation, Whitmarsh is best known for her hand-embroidered canvases and soft sculptures, which make reference to both contemporary pop culture and the 1970s and 80s eras of her childhood. Her work has been shown internationally with solo shows at Elaine Levy Project in Brussels, This Gallery in L.A., Kling and Bang Gallery in Reykjavik and the Watermill Center in New York. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, T Magazine, Juxtapoz, Bust Magazine and The Washington Post.
