NEW YORK, NY.- Derek Eller Gallery presents a solo
exhibition by Jessica Jackson Hutchins entitled “Kitchen Table
Using materials such as papier-mâché, glitter, paper
pulp, hand-made ceramics, photographs both found and taken, fragments of her
family’s clothing, and furniture from her home,
imparts a mythic yet highly personal story.
It is a story that touches
on universal themes of frailty and compassion, unicorns and angels, the majesty
of mountains and the beauty of nature’s minutiae. At the same time, Hutchins’
story is concerned with existence on a more personal scale: marriage and
motherhood, the rituals of daily life, and making art. On view through
27 March, 2010.
