MORRIS, Made to Feel
Whalen later told us that MORRIS is her great great grandmother’s last name, “I wanted this collection to be a tribute. She never got to show her genius because of the times...She was too busy being a housewife.”
Finding strength in softness and femininity has been central to Whalen’s work. Her use of sheer layers in this collection speaks to the complex tones and feigned comfort in MORRIS’ Middle America.
