Whitmarsh's current works explore a magnetic constellation of women artists and their archival presence from the era of second wave feminism. Acting as both homage and kaleidoscopic re-inventions of the past, the work integrates these histories within a present day dialogue. By fitting together past ephemera with modern and personal icons the work confers a rich sense of the periodicity of thought and culture. Whitmarsh works primarily in textiles, borrowing the gestures of painting, drawing and collage. The humility of the materials remove the works slightly from their painted and sculpted colleagues. Though grounded by precedent this medium still seems to offer surprise. Whitmarsh's work admits to past history while seeking to create anew.
