Blue McRight wraps her works tightly with bandages, binding them in intricate patterns of thread. It is unclear if this is to protect them or us. Bursting forth and holding back, referring to constriction, sexuality and transformation, using canteens, anchors, hoses, nozzles and trees, McRight’s unique sculptural language creates uncanny hybrids that dare you to come closer.
