About the Artists

, United States

Mindy Sue Wittock is an artist and mother who works out of her home studio in Upper Michigan. She makes soft sculpture that explores the intersection of childhood memory and experiences in motherhood. Wittock has an MFA from Arizona State University with a concentration in fibers. She has previously worked as an associate lecturer of art at the University of Wisconsin Fond du Lac and the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Wittock has an extensive exhibition record and has taught many textile-based workshops. She survives on coffee, enjoys watching vintage television shows, and listening to 80’s music.

"In my work, I use sewing and stitching techniques to create soft sculptures and textiles that are inspired by the intangible phantom of nostalgia. I collect objects and cloth to build pieces and cover surfaces that explore memory of a time passed. The act of sewing, of passing each object through my hands as I embellish, is the act of preserving the limitations of memory and fusing together the past and present with each stitch.
I wish every night when I go to bed that I can wake up in my eight year old self’s bedroom and hold all my things that comforted me just one more time. If I think about it hard enough I can almost feel like I could time travel for real but then here I am… a grown up holding onto childhood and feeling my way through the foggy depths of memory, grasping at the nostalgia" - Mindy  Wittock.
