A Tulsa-World | Lorton Family Gallery Exhibit
Oklahoma artists Jessica Bellamy and Sunni Mercer both explore ideas of personal and cultural identity, creating textural paintings and sculptures utilizing found objects. In her mixed media encaustic paintings, Bellamy buries, layers, excavates, and reveals imagery, texture, and elements from nature, creating art that explores identity and purpose, space and time. Mercer creates complex assemblage sculptures inspired by the human torso and patterns in nature and created from gathered objects. Through these pieces, she explores concepts of heritage, identity, and self.
Bellamy · Mercer was shown in the Tulsa-World | Lorton Family Gallery at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum from May 20, 2021, to August 21, 2021.
