NIKI McDONALD has given the traditional tapestries a strong sculptural presence, they stand, asking us to look twice and consider the seemingly compliant expressions of the subjects they portray. Niki likes to think that the figures represented are plotting and scheming their way to an autonomous and expressive future, that they are quietly changing the common thread, stitch by stitch, for generations of women to come.
