Serpents and Heroines Occupy Rivers Edge Gallery in the Dotte

Growing up in Southwest Detroit we learned at a very young age that everything can be reused. Every object has more than one life, more than one story to tell. My sculpture begins when I discover an object with a story to tell.

“Affairs with Serpents and Heroines” exhibited at Rivers Edge Gallery in Wyandotte, provided me an opportunity to use these narrative skills to explore biblical, historical, mythological and folkloric tales.  Beginning with the literal interpretations I then moved to more conceptual themes connected to the broader issues of identity, faith, loss and hope.

As always, my work is a dialogue between myself and the viewer. It is my hope that we will work together to create a shared story.

Below is a preview of some of the work featured in this exhibit opening Saturday, Nov 12 and ending January 31, 2012.  I am fortunate to being exhibiting with two internationally known artists; encaustic painter Birgit Huttemann-Holz and photographer Patricia Izzo.

About Babs

I consider myself a narrative artist, fascinated by the uniqueness of our human experience. Sculpture has enabled me to capture endless stories. I’m particularly seduced by the tangible qualities of Clay. Process and product are equally irresistible to me.
