Grant Olsen artist statement: For the Flying M show I will be bringing two blankets and a lot of small handmade patches. Over the last few months I have worked on making adult security blankets out of wool, angora and cashmere from clothing I buy second hand. These blankets are colorful, simple and reassuring. With some people having to tighten their belts, financially speaking, I will also be making a lot of small patches from the same materials that can be framed or stitched on, and are very affordable.
