People who have saved this event:



Alison Jacques Gallery is pleased to announce the first London solo exhibition of the Czech-born artist Klara Kristalova who lives and works in Sweden. Working with plaster, bronze, wood and ceramics, often in proportions traditionally associated with ornamental objects, the artist's expressionist renderings of figures, heads and torsos, frequently allude to sinister psychological narratives. Kristalova is a storyteller who uses the plasticity of sculpture to conjure allegories, dreams and nightmares that are evocative of fairytales or folklore. Her iconography includes trees and snow capped forests, toadstools, and a host of animals that exist alongside more surreal objects such as a half-gloved hand or isolated facial features.
