Aleana Egan

SISTERS (CLOCHE)

2018
untreated bronze
72 x 19 x 2 1/2 inches

Delicately hanging forms rendered in rigid bronze or plaster are the signature sculptures of artist Aleana Egan. Her sinuous lines enclose portions of the wall, asserting their presence while appearing impermanent and malleable. Egan often works in contrasting traits: airy but weighty, tough but brittle. The poetic title Sisters (Cloche) suggests a bell jar that can be imagined within the piece’s negative space, or that the similar lines could be seen as sharing some familial traits. Born in Ireland, Egan is influenced by the rich literary tradition of the country but often in unrecognizable ways, most notably in the enigmatic titles of her works and exhibitions.
