Offerings--Gifts for the Muse

Jan Arthur Harrell

When:
Friday, April 6 - Sunday, August 12, 2012

Where:
Project Room

This new body of enameled sculpture contains objects gifted to a larger than life persona — a muse. This bawdy and joyful goddess embraces life to its fullest and grabs a bit more when she gets the chance. These oversized gifts are particular to her feminine and robust tastes. A thorny rose bouquet, a string of fabricated pearls, a huge, metal-caged cupcake are offerings to her many lusty appetites. An amalgamation of found objects and fabrications produces an unconventional yet decidedly feminine design and palate. The expanded scale and the rusted patinas are a foil against the delicacy and lushness of the enamel surfaces.
