Lucy Skaer at MRAC


What jewelry does to its wearer, Skaer does to sculpture, attachments which offset the object, accessorize your sculpture. A good piece of jewelry loads the subject with meaning. A pearl necklace over breast, a man with a tramp stamp fetish, a single gold stud in the nose. These things load their subject. A pin stripe on a car, a chrome bumper, a piece of jade set into marble, vajazzaling its nude surface.
