佩塔.科因 Petah Coyne

佩塔・科因於1953年出生於奧可拉荷馬市,目前定居紐約,並專職為一位裝置藝術家與攝影師。她於1973年自肯特州立大學畢業,1977年自辛辛那提藝術學院畢業。

被稱作「複合媒材女王」,科因的雕塑作品,以那巴洛克式及死亡聯想的氣質為名。一系列的主題環繞文學、歌德以及基督教圖像,運用絲絨、蠟燭、鳥籠、羽毛、動物標本等等各類動植物元素組合而成。其中最為著名的蠟雕作品,以特殊技術與原料將蠟其他物質做完美結合,作品的質感完美呈現,並讓作品遊走於唯美與怪誕之間。

Petah Coyne was born in Oklahoma City in 1953. Currently lives in NewYork as a photographer and a sculptor. She attended Kent State University from 1972-1973 and then the Art Academy of Cincinnati, from which she graduated in 1977.

Described as the “queen of mixed media”, Petah Coyne’ s elaborate sculptures, characterized by a Baroque sensibility and macabre subject matter, reference an array of subjects and themes including literature, the Southern Gothic, and Christian iconography. Composed of velvet, candles, birdcages, feathers, taxidermy peacocks, among countless other materials. One of the most famous works wax statuary, with special technology, using materials to make the perfect combination with wax, representing a richly tactile, and occupy a space between the beautiful and the grotesque.

Coyne’ s sculptures and installations have been compared to the assemblages of Picasso, Schwitters, and Rauschenberg.
