The Claremont Museum of Art exhibition Furious Garden dynamically juxtaposes new paintings by Karen Kitchel and Deena Capparelli, and ceramic sculptures by Cj Jilek, all of whom focus on the extraordinary power and beauty of natural flora.
In this “furious garden,” three contemporary artists re-envision and re-construct the pastoral metaphors with which we’re familiar. Naughty, disobedient, and extravagant, this view of “garden” is active and provocative, intent on cultivating new pathways and relationships between landscape and occupant.
Art critic Betty Ann Brown writes “Capparelli, Jilek and Kitchel have created masterpieces from gardens they imagine. Their works slow us down, encouraging patient encounters, and thereby settling us back into the slow circles of nature.”
The exhibition, which is organized by Rebecca Hamm and the artists, will open at noon on Friday, September 3. The exhibition, generously sponsored by Gould Asset Management LLC, will remain on view through November 27, 2021.
