Materials and labor are central to expression for Billings-based artist Brooke Atherton. Her work visually describes her journey across the American West. Her fabric and mixed media drawings are layered from silk, cotton, and wool, using non-traditional methods to manipulate the fabric, such as ripping, burning, and rusting, representing the effects of natural forces. Many of her works relate specific stories and events, with underlying themes of passage through time and space.
