Art Seeks a Viewer

Art Seeks a Viewer


A playful commentary on the mutually dependent relationship between a work of art and its viewer. In this mixed media assemblage, artworks hanging in a museum vie for a viewer's attention.


The muted colors of the off-white wall and marble floor highlight the items on display — a photograph of a necklace I designed and three miniature Art Nouveau chairs.


The subject of the photograph is so desperate to be noticed that it tumbles out of its frame. Artwork inspired by openings of art exhibits where the attendees chatted in small groups with their backs to the art.


The vibrancy of its colors — royal blue, cobalt, aqua, gold and two shades of yellow — symbolize its urgency and the richness of its components — citrine, golden rutilated quartz, freshwater pearls and Murano glass beads — indicate its quality. The necklace includes semiprecious stones (citrine and golden rutilated quartz), freshwater pearls and blown Murano glass beads. Additional materials include dollhouse miniatures, wood, paper, and resin.


Custom framed with museum glass in a sophisticated deep wooden frame in collaboration with Chevy Chase Art Gallery, Washington, DC.
