Exhibitions: That Place: Selections from the Collection

Incorporating a well-worn wooden table and a misshapen ceramic bowl, Jessica Jackson Hutchins’s Kitchen Table Allegory evokes the private world of the home. This sculpture incongruously combines a castoff piece of furniture and a newly made ceramic vessel by the artist. The table served Hutchins and her family until she decided to use it as the plate for a series of prints that were initially presented with the sculpture. Personal without devolving into the confessional, the work situates the source of creative inspiration within the familial and the everyday.
