McCormack’s willowy skeletal forms are distilled to gripping memories pinned to stark, inky backgrounds, shielded by Victorian style framing.

McCormack says of her crocheted pieces, “The act of stiffening intricately crocheted cotton string with glue produces material that is structurally similar to delicate bone tissue. The string utilized in this process can be viewed as the basic cellular unit of fabrication, and by implementing media and practices inherited from my relatives, both living and deceased, I aim to generate emblems of my diminishing bloodline, embodied by each organism's skeletal remains.”
