Twisted Tales, Hidden Stories

I FIRST SAW CHRIS ANTEMANN’S INCREDIBLE WORK AT ART CHICAGO this year. I was smitten with her work from the moment I saw it. Her one-of-a-kind, ornate ceramics remind me of 18th century French porcelain figurines gone mad. Chris’ world is strange and fun, and as she puts it: “my work is about the twisted tales of master and servant, where the innocence of the floral-clad maid frolics with the dominance of patriarchal desire.”

Secret lives exposed... hidden stories, and a disregard for tradition is what makes Chris Antemann’s work my “pick of the month” for great contemporary art.

Chris is represented by Ferrin Gallery.
