The Art of Christina Bothwell

by JL SchnabelPosted on

The emotive sculptures of artist Christina Bothwell exudes a palpable somberness, contrasted by the pale, light tones of the mix of mediums she masterfully employs. Translucent cast glass that appears sea worn, raku clay and found objects converge in her delicate beings, giving the work an intriguingly dual texture. Culled from myth and fairytales, the works exist as wholly contained, dimensional narratives; Venus is re-imagined with a tangle of tentacles and a centaur appears with wheeled legs rather than hooves. Some of the pieces hold objects or small beings within their glowing, transparent torsos, becoming vessels for other lives, adding to the metamorphic transitions each piece appears to be undergoing.
