The Canopic Jars
by Devin Siglock
Reception: September 30, 2023, 1:00-5:00pm
The Canopic Jars were conceived as props for a short, avant-garde film, but grew beyond that project to become a separate body of work. Inspired by specimens in formaldehyde jars, these artworks combine visual beauty with a dash of repulsion. Bright colors clash with odd textures, creating lively objects that appear frozen in space and time.
