Artist Arlene Shechet discusses her Intersections project From Here On Now.
New York-based sculptor Arlene Shechet is known for glazed ceramic sculptures that are off-kilter yet hang in a balance between stable and unstable, teetering between the restraint of intellect and the insistence of instinct. There are several parts to Shechet’s intervention at the Phillips: choosing from her studio, selecting from the museum collection, and creating an installation that combines both. Invited to delve into the Phillips’s full inventory, Shechet’s “intersection” of her own sculptures with works from the Phillips, spread across five galleries of the museum, creates a seductive rhythm that mimics the serendipitous nature of her sculptures.
