Beautiful Tattooed Porcelain Figures by Jessica Harrison


Untitled

As part of a new body of sculptural work, artist Jessica Harrison has created a series of delicate porcelain figurines depicting idealized women in ball gowns, with one glaring difference from the collectibles found in your grandmother’s curio: each sculpture is covered neck to wrist in ornate sailor tattoos. This juxtaposition is not unfamiliar territory for Harrison who has created other, much more macabre figures, in the past.

The pieces shown in this blog, along with several others, will be on view at Galerie L.J. as part of her first solo show in Paris titled FLASH, beginning May 15, 2014.
