Information provided by the Artist: Jane Margarette is a Filipino American, Los Angeles-based sculptor who uses ceramics to explore mortality, agency, and desires of the animal body and nature at large. Vibrant and playful in both palette and form, Margarette’s works retain elements of brutality, domination, and hardness exploring themes of strength, protection, and sensuality. She utilizes dynamic scale to articulate a dichotomy between the delicate and strong, the logical and fantastical, the open and closed. Margarette’s work weaves a narrative that explores the elusive connections between micro-level interactions, invasions, and interventions within a global context. She points to an ecological unease that, in an era marked by crisis, rises to the forefront of global consciousness. Through the constraint imposed upon innocent yet deeply affected creatures, the artist addresses a profound sense of decay, inviting us to reflect and respond to its threatening consequences.
