“Baroque, but not Broken” series (Angie Meche Kilcullen)
A series using discarded ceramic items, paint, glue, resin, beads, baubles, etc
I understood why no one else wanted these pieces in the thrift store, but I’ve always been drawn to imperfect, fragile, broken things in life. I see so much beauty, courage and strength in things/people that have been damaged/broken but remain standing strong and tall, overcoming obstacles and challenges.
This series is loosely based on the Japanese art of Kintsugi (which translates to “golden rejoining”). I often return to this theme in my work with broken, discarded, unwanted items.
Barbara Bloom says it best... “When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful”.
