Others, like Abigail Smithson’s “Record of Hope & Loss” — made of discarded pieces of old basketball nets — address those experiences in more subtle and abstract ways, while James Flynn’s “Portable Monument to Harriet Tubman” and Kristin Meyers’s “Bone Shepard” use traditional forms to evoke the presence of ancestors.
¡SIN! Is a national juried exhibition of original contemporary artwork inspired by the traditional concept of human transgressions. The exhibiting artists, chosen by a reputable panel of jurors, will display their works that are directly related to one of the seven deadly sins; lust, envy, gluttony, sloth, greed, wrath and pride. Each of the seven deadly sins is explored through a variety of media and styles from across the country.
Emblematic works include Kristin Meyers' spookily spectacular Anoint sculpture, which suggests a synthesis of an African spirit fetish and hoodoo bottle tree and resonates a feral tribal vitality.
