Elizabeth King’s current exhibition “Compass” at Chelsea’s DANESE/COREY gallery presents exquisitely sculpted portraits and small-scale wooden limbs.
A body of work from different decades by sculptor Elizabeth King is currently on view at gallery DANESE/COREY in New York City (September 11 – October 10, 2015). The show presents two distinct bodies of King’s work: a collection of hyper realistic head sculptures from the 1980s and 1990s as well as some of her latest artworks consisting of small-scale wooden limbs.
The two collections from different decades of her creative work were combined to serve as studies of a fragmented selfhood. Upon entering the exhibition, guest are immediately confronted by the mannequin-like sculptures of hyper realistic faces (many of which are self-portraits). The full body of work shown in this exhibition communicates the contemporary idea of a “self” with the ability to be transformed by machines and technology.
“Compass” was selected by Time Out New York as one of the top ten exhibitions in New York City in September 2015. For further information, please visit DANESE/COREY’s website.
