BODY LANGUAGE II:
Sculpturesite gallery will present Body Language II with a collection of figurative sculpture from Deidre DeFranceaux, John Denning and Christin Nelson. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 11th from 5:30 - 7:30pm. Artists will be in attendance.
Deidre deFranceaux's life-size inflatable kinetic figures made of nylon hosiery and latex rubber evoke human emotions through their intense gestural references. Here longing and rejection in both hetero- and homosexual relationships are observed in this site-specific installation.
John Denning is fascinated with the passage of time and how the human body constantly reinvents itself through physical and emotional experiences. He will show standing and suspended human figures and relating animals in bronze, fiberglass, epoxy and water-based resins.
Christin Nelson explores the expressiveness of the human body through its individual parts, as she separates them, then reassembles them in surreal ways to create imaginary human creatures of surprising sweetness and elegance.
