Ritual and ceremony are paramount in the complex narratives the American-based artist Minka Sicklinger weaves into her work. An observation of everyday forms, the subconscious as well as inspiration drawn from a lifetime of collecting highly decorated textiles and jewelry translates into geometric patterns and shapes. These serve to form a timeless matrix in which humans and animals dance, fly and worship, offering reverence and mysticism to the everyday.
Sicklinger has participated in a number of exhibitions including Ricco Maresca Gallery, New York, “The Faberge Big Egg Hunt NYC,” Rockerfeller Center, White Box Gallery, Societe des Arts Technologiques, Montreal, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco.
