Ginny Sykes - March 2013

Deliberate Dissonance

Ginny Sykes explores memory and dreams in new mixed media sculptures. She uses recycled materials such as bones, wood, metal, and fabric collected through the years, adding paint to the surfaces. Sykes mixes abstraction and anthropomorphic form in a visceral aesthetic that cultivates a deliberate dissonance between beauty and ugliness. Informed by feminism and Jung’s theories of alchemy and transformation, these works are poetic “storytellers”, contemporary artifacts that speak of, and to the body; about its losses, pain, and survival.
