Tattooed Porcelain Figurines by Jessica Harrison
The exhibit, titled FLASH, features yet another incarnation of Jessica’s manipulated porcelain works. Earlier works by the artist were of mutilated, decapitated and maimed female figurines. This time the classic porcelain ladies are tattooed with traditional symbolism (Clipper ships, swallows, skulls, hearts, etc). These “Painted Ladies”, as they are called, are found objects the artist then alters.
Below are several images from the pieces as they appear in the exhibit:
The exhibit runs from May 15 through June 24th at Galerie L.J., 12 rue commines, 75003 Paris, France
