Swan Coach House Gallery says
GAUDI JU-JU artist LILLIAN BLADES talks with
Special Guest KEVIN SIPP

Saturday, FEB 4, 3pm

Blades presents a body of assemblage and installation pieces called “Gaudi Ju-Ju.” Within the artworks are an intense collection of found objects: baskets, boxes, picture frames, food stamps, shells, stones, buttons, magazine clippings, hand-made tourist trinkets, glass, burnt wood from North Georgia. The artist prefers to leave them “as is” in an effort “to preserve their honesty” and respect the embedded memory. Inspired by the Central African concept of Nkisi--that spirits can inhabit objects--Blades conjoins the spiritual with the vernacular. Crafty aesthetics like quilting, decoupage, and beaded curtains intuitively tie the artwork together into an architecture of objects.
