Deborah Horrell & Joan's Wings

"Since 2000, Horrell's work has evolved from elegantly refined vessels---presented either as single objects or in still-life groupings that suggest a lineage traced through the poetic paintings of Giorgio Morandi---into metaphoric containers of the corporeal body's fears.........the artist has used the delicate fragility of cast pâté de verre to poetically respond to the reality of the body in trauma."
