Spring 2024 Winner: Matdeline Phillips
This semester's winner is Matdeline Phillips! Her winning piece was created with silk
screen print and quilted cotton, entitled "Circadian." Her exhibit can be viewed in the WMC gallery, RUC 339, Monday through Friday.
"Matdeline Phillips is a senior at Tennessee Technological University working towards
a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Fibers. Her current work uses
traditional, fiber techniques to produce work based on life experiences and her interactions
with others. Circadian, the piece displayed in this exhibition, is based on fluctuating
states of being awake, and asleep. Matdeline writes about this piece stating: “Dreams,
nightmares, and in-between are a constant state of discomfort in my life. Vivid nightmares,
and slips of time, cause me to spiral about what's real and what's formulated in these
dream states. Each clock displays a time, or a number, each of which connects to a
particular date or time associated with the events happening in my present life."
