• Translucent Porcelain Installations

    Translucent Porcelain, Underglaze, Light, Wood, Metal Rods

    Cara Long's translucent porcelain installations explore the haunting beauty of docile female figures restrained within stark, potentially perilous environments. The figures, painted directly onto thin panels of porcelain and then back-lit to give a subtle glowing effect, provoke emotions of loss and defeat. Her combination of dangling, submissive characters overlaid on a delicately illuminated surface creates a vexingly inviting experience. The precision of technique with its aesthetically immaculate glow allures even the most tepid into Long’s emotionally disparate imagery. The marriage of such striking visuals and seductive translucency prevails in this intimate series of installations.
