Converse Subversives | Shona Rae

Saturday, Oct 1, 2022 at 10:00AM Repeating event

Okotoks Art Gallery

Saturday, September 17, 2022 - 10 am to Friday, November 4, 2022 - 5 pm

“Converse Subversives” is Shona Rae's latest series of narrative/figurative sculptures that engages traditional myths, fairy tales, folklore, ancient artifacts and personal history to explore how societies in the past through to the present dealt with social inequalities, gender identification, agism, rape, plague and political upheavals. In times of change, stories can be a comfort to cling to or a tool to probe with.
Rae's recent work strives to shift perspectives, juxtapose the known and the unknown, the precious and the mundane to probe the human psyche for memories, dreams and personal tales. She is seeking synergy that blurs the boundaries between jewellery and sculpture, metal and textiles, art and fine craft.
