Mallory Zondag is a Mixed Media Fiber artist. She graduated from Pratt Institute with honors, a BFA in Fashion Design and a minor in Art History. While at Pratt she focused on creating handmade one of a kind textiles for her collections. Since graduating, she has built a career as an independent artist and arts educator. Her work involves felting, dyeing, weaving and other mixed media fiber practices to create sculptural wall hangings and installations. The growth and decay of the natural world, the duality of discomfort and attraction we feel towards it and humanity's place within this dichotomy informs her creations of dimensional textures and sculptural pieces. Mallory shares her passion for handmade one of a kind textiles through various educational programs and residencies. Many of these programs involve a collaborative element where the entire school works together on a single project. These programs bring an exciting and hands on artistic experience to the students as well as emphasizing community and collaboration through art. Previous community work has included creating a fiber living wall with 500 elementary students in Easton, PA where students learned about fiber art, sustainability and worked together to create the leaves and flowers of the living wall. Another recent project involved weaving a twenty foot mural from recycled tshirts during a community arts festival. Most recently, Mallory created a mixed media fiber art installation for The Allentown Art Musuem’s Artways. The installation looks at the structures of racial inequality in America through the metaphorical lens of nature. Mallory creates decorative textile wall pieces and moments of nature made from a variety of sustainable fibers in her studio when she isn’t involved in one of her many community art projects. Mallory has exhibited in galleries, participated in artist festivals, residencies and collective shows in New York and Pennsylvania.
