The spaces and scenes that Maggie creates trigger a certain nostalgia. Three lines on a page remind you of the smell and taste of bacon on Saturday morning. A box of mix reminds you of pancakes at Grandma’s house. A Shea Stadium ticket stub on the table reminds you of dinner after a spring baseball game. In her works, we return to our own memories of the seemingly mundane moments in our lives and realize how rich and meaningful they actually were. There’s a longing to return to the rose-colored familiar.
The Maggie Cowles Collection is made from sustainable alternatives to polyester and other synthetic fabrics. Our production is free of toxin chemicals. Here at DSNY - it is our mission to raise awareness around the consumption of plastic based fabrics through our artist support network.
