Hal Katzen Gallery Presents Laura Ann Jacobs Sculpture Exhibition

. March 21, 2011 . 0 Comments

This will be Laura Ann Jacobs’ premiere exhibition in New York. Ms Jacobs, a West Coast artist has exhibited extensively in California.

This will be her first exhibition with Hal Katzen Gallery located at 459 Washington street in Tribeca.

Jacobs is known for ornate sculptural pieces, alive with color and bejewel-ment, yet buried within the ornamentation is a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the limits to which we allow fashion and our ideas of “beauty” to shape our bodies and minds. Her work explores the extent to which we let fashion take us, our desire to be desired. The advancement of feminism has been countered by society’s pursuit of physical perfection and Jacobs work has hit a cord on this surreal circus-like atmosphere in which we now find ourselves.

Despite the underlying commentary, Jacobs’ works are objects of beauty. Her one-of-a-kind creations are made in part from woman’s garments and accessories, both thought by the artist to be restrictive and sometimes preposterous. She makes a statement with her art that is beautiful, thought provoking and sometimes unsettling.
