TATTOOED OR MACABRE BUT DELICATE
As part of a new body of sculptural work, artist Jessica Harrison has created a series of delicate porcelain figurines depicting idealized women in ball gowns, with one glaring difference from the collectibles found in your grandmother’s curio: each sculpture is covered neck to wrist in ornate sailor tattoos. This juxtaposition is not unfamiliar territory for Harrison who has created other, much more macabre figures.
Harrison proposes a multi-directional and pervasive model of skin as a space in which body and world mingle.
