Telling Gestures opens Friday, October 11, 6-8:00 p.m.
In the exhibition Telling Gestures, BFA candidate Marla George uses ceramic sculpture to explore the silent communication behind body language. Ms. George disassembles and reconstructs the large figures during the firing process using a technique similar to that of contemporary sculptors Andrea Keys Connel and Beth Cavner Stitcher. The surface texture on the figures is created by pulling and scraping the clay and is inspired by Lucian Freud's application of paint. The grouping of the whole and sectioned figures invites the viewer to compare and contrast different kinds of body language and to have a more observant eye about this kind of communication.
