"mini playthings" is a snippet of an installation from a larger body of work, called "playthings". Developed by emerging artist + curator Cassia Powell, this exhibition features an array of mixed-media installation-based pieces, often using a combination of oil painting, soft-sculpture, and both hand-sewn and machine-stitched elements. Each piece of fabric used in "playthings" is sourced from found or given materials, such as: Their grandmother's quilt, velvet and silk scraps from their parents' wedding, shirts given from friends, trimmings from a discarded baby blanket, and a mixture of found blankets, sheets, pillowcases and embroidery thread.
