Merill Comeau is a mixed media artist who believes that, by deconstructing and reconstructing textiles and altering clothing, she can disrupt, reorder and rebuild real or imagined narratives. Her stories take the shape of installations, garments and murals that explore common human concerns and create narratives of repair and regeneration. In addition to her solo studio practice, she works with communities to create collaborative works of art, facilitating the exploration of individual identity and participants’ commonalities. This work results in site-specific installations and collaborative wall hangings.
"I explore historical and contemporary women’s roles: the toil of the maker, the privilege of the wearer, the job of mothering, how to be a ‘good’ daughter, and societal expectations for sexual and emotional expression."
