Jones-Carter Gallery and ArtFields® proudly present the artwork of installation artist, Meredith Dallas, recipient of the Bloom Award.
The Bloom Award is a solo exhibition awarded to an emerging artist competing in the ArtFields Competition. Meredith Dallas accepted the exhibition award during the finale ceremonies at ArtFields 2016.
This solo exhibition will feature 3-Dimensional large-scale sculptures and 2-Dimensional aged latex drawings. The large metal sculptures employ the welding process to secure the shape and strength of each work then intricately cut mirrors are placed as a covering on the metal body. This technique offers up a dialogue of men’s work and the tedious feminine labor of placing the glass covering.
“My newest line of investigation in my sculptural work deals with masculine and feminine associations. The steel forms confront the body of the viewer while mimicking the scale of the viewer’s body. The pieces recall the forms and concerns of Minimalism, dealing speciﬁcally with phenomenological experience.” Explains Meredith Dallas
