DESCRIPTION

Jan Huling creates three-dimensional works of art by covering found objects with beads and other objects arranged in colorful patterns. Huling's beadwork is quite diverse, spanning from a beaded kazoo to entire table tops. She draws deep inspiration from her fascination with indigenous or popular culture and world religions. By juxtaposing religious and political icons with an eclectic assortment of objects, she challenges the viewer to consider common images within an altered context. Her work has been featured at New York City's Lyon's Wier Gallery, the Duane Reed Gallery in St. Louis and the Morgan Contemporary Glass Gallery in Pittsburgh. She was also a featured artist at SOFA.
