Jane Rosen and Ann Hollingsworth: Form & Place reviewed by Square Cylinder
News

Portraying birds as bare-essence statues, would not, for most artists, be an intuitive choice for valorizing them. Rosen, who makes birds out of blown and cast glass, embraces the contradiction. She sculpts them as the Egyptians did, as inert icons, leaving just enough information in her attenuated shapes so that we can identify them as birds of prey: hawks, falcons, kestrels and kites. Hers are not portraits of individuals. They reveal only generic traits, most notably the poses of nobility that raptors strike when they perch on tree limbs or rocks. Frozen and statuary, but also heraldic in the manner of ancient gargoyles, they signal something far greater than just bird-ness. Read the full review on SQUARECYLINDER.com
