Sunbonnet Sue is a traditional American quilt pattern; the small characters are often portrayed in a grid layout with multiple Sunbonnet Sue’s tucked safely into their own block. Melissa Vogley Wood’s interest in this character stems from its inherent ambiguities as a metaphor of icon and persona. In these works, the artist releases this intrinsically symbolic character to investigate the inevitable mayhem created in their encounters.
