Bread and Bones
Works by Mary Catherine Newcomb

July 15 - August 12, 2018
Reception: Sunday, July 15, 2018, 2 - 4 PM
Artist conversation with curator: Saturday, July 28, 2018, 2 - 4 PM

The Visual Arts Centre of Clarington is pleased to present Bread and Bones, an exhibition by artist Mary Catherine Newcomb.

Mary Catherine Newcomb’s artistic practice is deeply engaged with the exploration of death, myth, rebirth, nature, and time. Her work often occupies paradoxical intersections of attraction and repulsion, myth and reality, and life and death. Bread and Bones is an exhibition in which Newcomb’s contemplation of life and death is manifested in a series of sculptures featuring plants growing out of animal corpses, bread baked into the skulls and bodies of dogs, hares, and chickens, and a hanging cow skeleton ornamented with intricate Talavera decorative motifs. Newcomb’s seductive work invites you into a fantastical space that is both strange and familiar, offering a distinct mode of reality and evoking terror and wonder.

Biography:
Mary Catherine Newcomb is a sculptor who works in a variety of media while exploring notions of nature, magic, myth, science, and time.

She later enrolled in the Fine Arts program at the University of Waterloo, and in 1991 she received an M.F.A. from York University. Newcomb’s work has been exhibited in national and international institutions including CAFKA at Cambridge Sculpture Gardens, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, and Loop Gallery in Toronto.
