Megan Whitmarsh's Soft Sculptures

Color Work Station (installation detail), 2010
fabric, cardboard, luan, wood, embroidery, marker, vinyl, wire, stuffing, paint

How fantastic is this sewn world of paraphernalia by Megan Whitmarsh?  I would love to own even one of these objects and paint from it.  There is something about the soft, clumsy, overstuffed aesthetic that counters the expected hard edges of a wall outlet or clock or radio.  

This image feels like if two of my favorite things to look at; Oldenburg's store and Jonas Woods' plant paintings were mashed together.  So great.  And she has a ton more, be sure to check out her website here.
