Kristen Egan’s Mythology-Tinged Sculptures Shown in ‘Still Coming Ashore’

by Andy SmithPosted on

Kristen Egan‘s work, packed with notes of mythology and folk art, is featured in a new show at Arch Enemy Arts in Philadelphia. “Still Coming Ashore” features the whimsical sculptures of the artist, who also co-owns the archery gear/fine arts business Egan & Ives.

“My work explores concepts like evolution, predator/prey relationships, and the nature of dreams,” she says. “Merging gourds, antler, bone, and horsehair with paper-clay, resin, and acrylics, I’ve been attempting to blend tribal aesthetics with a modern understanding of our place in the universe.”

“Still Coming Ashore” opens on Aug. 3. See more works from the show below.
