reception: Bedsheets by Rebecca Hutchins
Bedsheets examins the bed as a place where many things do and maybe do not - happen. Love, safety, comfort, rejuvenation alongside loneliness and desolation. A place one may avoid for fear of what is no longer there. Hutchins also approached items common to most households, the bed, and its sheets, as a landscape where light, texture, and shape create their own sort of beauty, perhaps a reflection of the emotions spilled out there.
