"Metamorphosis as a topic" les sculptures de Christina Bothwell

Christina Bothwell nous parle des méthamorphoses du corp et de l'âmes avec de délicates sculptures alliant le verre, l'argile, le bois, la peinture à l'huile associés à des objets trouvés et d’éléments empruntés à la taxidermie.

Dans ses travaux récents la métamorphose se fait plus vive: de petites figurines sont comme "figées" dans le corps de figurines plus grandes.

"I think of these pieces as souls, each being pregnant with their own potential, giving birth to new, improved versions of themselves."

"In my work I am drawn to the processes of birth, death, and renewal. What lies below the surface fascinates me and I try to capture the qualities of the "unseen" that express the sense of wonder that I feel in my daily existence. I am attracted to glass because it can do everything that other sculptural media can; in addition, it offers an inner space and transmits light.

My subject matter includes babies, animals, and children as they embody the essence of vulnerability that is the underlying theme in my work. Currently I am exploring metamorphosis as a topic, and have been incorporating figures within figures in my pieces. Within each glass figure there is a smaller figure seen through the surface of the glass."
