Crystal Schenk: Shelter

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday December 11
Bullseye Gallery
300 NW 13th Ave.
 
If you saw Crystal Schenk and Shelby Davis’ life-size re-creation of an 18-wheeler at Milepost5 in 2009 or Schenk’s crystal-encrusted longhorn steer skull at the 2010 Disjecta Biennial, you know she’s an artist with a big vision and a virtuosity with unconventional materials. She proves she’s still got it in her latest work, the first show she’s ever done at Bullseye Gallery. The installation is called Shelter, and it consists of a mock-up of an Appalachian shanty, made entirely of stained glass. As an art object, Shelter is flat-out gorgeous, even as it depicts a style of dwelling associated with abject poverty. But home is as much a state of mind as it is a construction of wood, brick and mortar. No matter how humble, Schenk seems to posit, there is no castle like home. Through Dec. 21.
