Angela Malchionno’s exhibition of monoprints and other works on paper is inspired by Utopian theories developed by Catherine Beecher in the 1840s, which advocated for making the home a "training ground for the young" and a haven from "the competition and exploitation of industrial capitalist society." An emphasis was placed on women as virtuous, tied to nature, and above all, that domestic work should be done by hand. Malchionno makes connections to our current society because she feels we too are overrun by technology and social media. Though she finds Beecher’s Haven Strategy to be dated, and not supportive of current feminist principles, she nevertheless values the imperative to create handmade objects. Malchionno works in print media, fiber, and installation.
