J Catherine Shinay is a fiber artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. J Catherine's work hopes to bridge the gap between 21st century ideas of entertainment and the slow, deliberate, and specific act of traditional fiber work. By translating images into abstracted, computerized patterns, J Catherine aims to physically stitch the pixels of ever evolving internet and media culture, transforming these fleeting trends into permanent, traditional, and visually timeless objects. This dichotomy between technological convenience and the mental value of slow work guides not only J Catherine's art practice, but her approach to the modern life as a whole.
