Here’s an installation-week peek at Leslee Fraser’s show No Sure Footing, opening this Thursday.
Sifting through found objects, natural and political history, religious iconography and suburban kitsch as source materials, Fraser creates small-scale ceramic figure assemblages that draw the viewer in for a closer look. From this intimate vantage point, Fraser’s repurposed figurine tableaux offer darkly humorous allegories that reflect life’s absurdities. Suburban malls, the Bible, scientific theory and domestic talismans all provide fodder for Fraser’s miniature parables as she assembles familiar tokens into vignettes both tender and thoroughly skewed. To get up close and personal with Fraser’s tiny bricolage is to be reminded that sometimes, the cutest fragments of life’s detritus can pack the darkest punchlines.
Join us in the gallery for an opening reception from 6-8pm this Thursday, January 15th!
