Jessica Stoller: Flesh, Feminism and the Sublime

Jessica Stoller: Flesh, Feminism and the Sublime
Fleshy, fecund figures, delicate decay, and saccharine spoilage abound in Jessica Stoller‘s intricate, evocative porcelain works. Infusing sugar with vice, frosted breast cakes and BDSM scenes adorned with swans, Rococo gilding and ruffled gowns populate tableau where spiders and snails creep beneath to feast on the sweet excess. Each exquisite piece is tempered with satire, unleashing all the glorious distortions of the female body while reflecting the fears and desires that have been projected onto the female form for millennia.
