Curated by Bibiana Huang Matheis
Linda Filley has been making her paper creations for over 12 years. They grew out of display work she was doing for a store in the Hudson Valley. Like the signature Paper Dresses she created for the store’s front window, the Shoes are a transformation of everyday materials. Cardboard, brown paper, wallpaper, old maps, and sheet music, sometimes new and sometimes vintage. Her work speaks to many themes: recycling, history, and nature with an eye to fashion and whimsy.
A self-taught artist who was born in Glasgow, Scotland and grew up in Montreal, Canada, Linda currently lives in the Hudson Valley.
