Féminaire

FullSizeRender 14.jpgMai-Thu Perret

32 glazed ceramics, 9 figures and 1 dog comprise the exhibition “Féminaire” at David Kordansky Gallery in Los Angeles. Artist Mai-Thu Perret uses artistic techniques such as ceramic, papier-mâché and wicker to create works that comment on female identity. Displayed on an elevated platform is “Les Guarillères,” which includes the 9 figures and 1 dog. Each figure is created with different materials yet as an ensemble they all appear as a contemporary army in modern clothing. The figures, and dog, all face the ceramic wall hangings. Like the figures, each ceramic is different. Some are smooth, others are more textural and many include mix colors.

Swirls of thick paint spiral across twelve canvases of equal size. Some are monochrome, while others mix two or three colors. Made by Lesley Vance, the abstract twirls of paint create a sense of energy. It appears as though it was produced with a thick brush as often times you are able to see the individual brush marks on the canvas.
