Winsome Words and Curious Birds

Thursday, October 14th, 2010
A Cheerful selection of mixed-media hand-sculpted, sometimes slightly kinetic words chosen to evoke nostalgia, humor and appreciation for an abundant, yet seemingly diminishing collective vocabulary. Curious birds give tribute to communications that succeed beyond and in spite of words.

Artist Bio: Rhea Giffin 

 Bringing papier mâché to unexpected expression, sculptor and writer, Rhea Giffin , creates thoughtful art with broad appeal.

 Rhea is an accomplished Northwest artist most known for her papier mâché/mixed media sculpture since the birth of her “storybowl” series in 1997.  She has since gone on to create a multitude of figurative, imaginative and representational sculptures, large and small.  “There is a distinctly playful and profound way this work engages people of all ages and class” she says. “Ít seems to touch a place of innocence or nostalgia.”  Her collectable works have been exhibited in local galleries and select juried shows across the country.  She has been featured in many publications worldwide, including the soon to be released 500 Cabinets Lark book and the 2008, 500 Chairs: Celebrating Traditional and Innovative Designs, Lark book that is scheduled to release a revised mini version in 2010.  Her sculpture “Bobbing for Answers,” recently received a Citizens Council for the Arts juried show honorarium and The Brooten Purchase Award  .. Ms. Giffin co-founded and has been the director of The Northwest Papier Mâché Artists’ Guild since 2000 . An organization of professional artists interested in exploring and reclaiming the fine art potential of this ancient art form.

 

                        “Beyond the medium is the art itself.  Within each piece is a celebration, a question and a desire for hope and connection with all life and the complex world we share.”  — Rhea Giffin
