Event Description:
The Taubman Museum of Art is pleased to present Alison Pack: Metal Delicious, featuring work by Radford, Virginia-based artist Alison Pack that tells stories through imagery that present stereotypes, misconceptions and clichés of womanhood. Her intimately scaled copper and sterling silver sculptures are created by the traditional metal working processes of shell forming, raising, fabrication and casting to create humorous fantasies referencing femininity and food. As a traditional southern girl, Pack was told that tools were considered inappropriate for a female. Ironically, the development of her hand-skills through sawing, filing and forming proved to be powerful expressions of her femininity and sexuality as well as commemorative pieces enabling her to remember some of her life experiences. Combining sly humor and playful sensuality, Pack suffuses her metal sculptures with bright color using Prismacolor pencils and acrylic paints that allude to luscious surfaces such as fabric and cake icing.
