ARTIST’S PALETTE

QUESTIONABLE ORIGINS DUNWOODY ARTIST, EILEEN BRAUN EXPLORES SCULPTURE'S POSSIBILITIES

One among 40 hanging pieces in Eileen's Canopy installation.

THE SPRUILL GALLERY IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THEIR FIRST EXHIBIT OF THE NEW YEAR, QUESTIONABLE ORIGINS, FEATURING NEW SCULPTURAL WORK BY DUNWOODY ARTIST EILEEN BRAUN, NOW THROUGH  MARCH 14. An award-winning ceramicist, Braun grew tired of the limitations and fragility of porcelain and sought a new medium that would not resist her manipulation. Large or small, the work captivates the viewer and gives birth to a new form of life from its chrysalis-like structures, begging the audience to question their origins. Eileen’s work is very much process driven - formed of rattan reed, cotton string, encaustic wax, latex paint. In some instances, found objects like fabric and dressmaker’s pattern tissue are integrated into the work. Her sculptures are monumental, Caught, 2019

WHAT IT IS Antique Chest

wood to your liking.

Don’t be afraid to do something different, and don’t take things too seriously. If the piece you’re working with doesn’t have any real value, you have so many options to liven it up, including paint, finish and hardware.

Make your piece multi-purpose by turning the lid into a game table or by storing your cocktail accessories inside for an easy-access mini bar!

Spread the vintage love. Use antiques strategically and as accent pieces to keep your overall aesthetic from coming off as too dated.
