Margaret Keelan

My figurative sculptures confront issues of immortality, decay, beauty, aging and innocence.The faces are based on 19th c. dolls, yet their contemporary styling and decayed surfaces disconnect them from time and place.What was once clean and crisp has given way to something more complex and textured.Set with snakes, hummingbirds, butterflies and strawberries, the figures hint at a narrative of natural and magical forces.
