See the Latest by Katie Stout at Nina Johnson Gallery in Miami
The artist’s exhibition at Nina Johnson Gallery introduces a robust and radiant use of bronze and glass.
Known for infusing everyday objects and sculptures with extraordinary wit and magic, Brooklyn-based artist Katie Stout offers multi-faceted works which impart a subversive narrative of blossoming femininity and an acknowledgment of mother nature’s eye for perfection. The artist’s latest presentation at Nina Johnson Gallery will introduce a robust and radiant use of bronze and glass, elevating man’s best friend and garden creatures to mythical proportions. Within Stout’s oeuvre, lighting, seating, and tapestries often evoke figures and materials of the past, uniting them with fantasies of the present. In otherworldly shows, viewers are introduced to crafts brimming with unexpected life: Butt to Butt (2012) is a cheeky paper mache stool, sculpted into a reclining female figure; And the Other is Gold (2017), a charming floor lamp, is an earthy character with gilded features; and Narcissus Mirror (2017) brings two female protagonists together in an effort to support a surreal full-length mirror.
