Enchanting eternal flowers engulf familiar objects of domestic life

Enchanting eternal flowers engulf familiar objects of domestic life

Giselle Hicks is a sculpture artist currently working as a resident artist the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Helena, Montana. Her porcelain sculptures depict luscious groups of flowers bursting with vitality, yet immortalized, frozen and dead, in ceramic. It is an ideal juxtaposition creating the “perfect flower, ” a metaphor for her installations about domestic space and human relationships.

Hicks explains that her sculpture “investigates the sites within a domestic space that are routinely and ritually inhabited, particularly the bed/bedroom and table/dining room.” She goes on to say, “This work is an abstraction of the expansive and complex life experiences that take place across surfaces of these sights within the home. ”
