Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston for an artist talk with Coulter Fussell as she speaks about her current exhibition, “The Raw Materials of Escape.” Free admission – open to all! Coulter Fussell’s early-developed arts view perceives craft and other arts as indistinguishable from one another. Painting, sculpture, and textile work are one solitary entity in her mind. From youth, this combination developed into an unintentional mash-up, resulting in quilts and textile works that defy expectations of the medium. Fussell relies on the no-holds barred nature of contemporary painting rules to free her compositions from the constraints of pattern. In turn, she simultaneously relies on the strict discipline of traditional craftwork to act as a self-editing tool.
