Lined Suspense

Alexis Silk 
Lined Suspense, 2016.
Original, hand-blown, Hand-sculpted, Murano glass sculpture with metal structure.
Signed on verso.

While making intrinsically beautiful objects, Alexis explores issues of human nature in regards to society, relationships, nature, and family. Her hanging figures, for example, are an eloquent exploration of objectification of the body. The glass simultaneously appears like skin and evokes a sense of something superficially applied, like a garment. Cast iron “meat” hooks are a visceral comment on the objectification of the body. The color on the interior of the torso is different from the exterior color, suggesting that if one goes below surface appearance there is more to be discovered. Steel frames represent conceptual boxes of perception that society puts us in. © Alexis Silk.
