Clay Art Center is proud to present Reconfigurations, featuring the ceramic sculptures and drawings of Cynthia Consentino.
“Reconfigurations investigates past representations of the female in art, particularly the ceramics figurine. Alterations and reconfigurations subvert and expand upon the originals’ ideas of gender. By stripping down, inverting and reassembling the familiar, we can look anew and better see what we consume. Concepts of beauty, art, and worth are interconnected with our ideas of gender. What we consume in our cultural soup of arts and media both forms and reflects our beliefs. Whether it is fine art sculpture, the decorative knick knack, fairy tale, or religious stories, to name a few “art” sources in this exhibit, associations between good and bad, valuable and worthless, female and male are delineated.
