Skin, Embellished is an exhibition exploring not-so-typical notions of skin. Featured artists are Teri Frame, Ryan Kelly, Linda Lopez, Mathew McConnell, Margaret Meehan, Julie Moon, and Lindsay Pichaske. The show is curated by Linda Lopez and Lindsay Pichaske.
The range of work includes ceramic sculptures with novel approaches to surface design, performance with animal headdresses, and photographs of porcelain facial prosthetics. More than mere surface embellishments, the ‘skins’ in this exhibit transform the objects, people, and animals inside. Abstract sculpture sheds its skin, decorated guns become delicate objects, man becomes animal, and ethnicity changes through facial protheses.
This exhibition is part of the 47th Annual NCECA (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) conference, which will take place in Houston March 19th through 23rd. The exhibition will remain on view until May 31, 2013.
