Korean-American artist Danielle Andress was born in Fairbanks, Alaska. Her weaving Object of Desire draws a parallel between the art object and her experience as a woman. In the US, weaving is most often gendered female and often categorized as “craft,” existing outside the realm of fine art. Andress refutes this notion with her conceptual weavings, incorporating wordplay and pop-cultural references.
