Shawne Major: Love Calls Us to the Things of This World

April 11 to May 16, 2009

Opening Reception and Catalog Launch with the Artist:
Saturday, April 11, 6-8PM

Shawne Major's exciting post-pop, found-object assemblage works were recently exhibited in the Prospect.1 New Orleans Biennial, curated by Dan Cameron. Love Calls Us To the Things of This World presents the artist's love of materials and her creative impulse to fashion objects of arresting wonder and beauty from seemingly mundane objects.

Shawne Major’s compositions are about the human condition at our historical moment, about art making as still connected to ritual, fetish, the handmade object, and the struggle with chaos, about answering the volumes of discarded consumerist objects with a personal levee against the flow. Her works are, finally, new expressions of the great inexhaustible American potential for democratic subversion just when we need it the most.
