Roz Chast: At Home

14 August - 19 September 2021

Throughout the COVID-19 lockdown, Chast made drawings that reflected the strange, surreal quality of this past year, as well as the nostalgia for our pre-pandemic lives. The enforced time at home also revived Chast’s passion for craft, which she says ”keeps her hands moving and helps quiet her anxiety.” Chast created more than 100 pysanky eggs (a Ukranian wax and dye technique), and a number of textiles (embroideries and hand-hooked rugs). These designs incorporate Chast's inimitable  imagery -- characters familiar to her many fans.
