Layers of time and memory build in Ella Whittemore Hill’s work. Her work looks at structure— the contrast between the rigidity of architecture and interiors and the softness and fluidity of fibers. In this intersection, she investigates memories and how we reflect on the images we hold on to. The work she does in soft sculpture and fiber wall hangings is a continuation of the work she learned from her grandmother. Her art works at reaching back to memories, how we build stories out of them, and how we alter them over time.
