Mary Little was born in Northern Ireland and now lives and works in Los Angeles. Her use of canvas as a medium developed out of her early career as a furniture designer. With couture workmanship and a deep understanding of the material, she cultivates her ideas through what she calls “a joyful serendipity”. Little’s delicate, relief-patterned fabric sculptures amount to a remarkable and unlikely study of structure and movement.
