Isa and Dylan interview Martha Coates Donahoo.

Martha Coates Donahoo is an interdisciplinary artist who ponders the alchemy of time and the art of saving the world. They believe that folk traditions have the power to lead us back into kinship and reciprocity with the world around us. Martha blends pre-industrial sensibilities and technologies with discarded modern ephemera to create pieces that ask, “where have we come from, where are we going?” Their current body of work revolves around folk inspired garments cut from found textiles using historical patterns that are then dyed with foraged botanicals and block printed with hand carved blocks.
