“The rich depth apparent in my work relates intrinsically to my appreciation of nature and interest in cultural history,” said Sexton, who enjoys working with rich color and luxurious texture.
Drawn by a fascination for color, pattern and form, Sexton said she has become passionate about sculpted surface design. Her art explores opposing forces, expressed through contradiction and the unexpected as she uses unlikely materials such as hand-dyed silks with delicate thread work.
“I am committed to an artistic process that celebrates creativity and the uniqueness achievable only through imperfection and artistic fallibility,” said Sexton. “My recent work explores this concept through many layers of subtle, yet rich, color glowing with even greater depth of intellect, humor and spiritual meaning.”
Sexton’s award-winning art cloth, collage and sculpture pieces have been exhibited in galleries throughout the United States.
Don’t miss the opportunity to visit with Sexton about her work at the 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. receptions Wednesday, June 13.
The Bosque Gallery is located in the Center for the Arts building on the Barker Cypress campus at 9191 Barker Cypress. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.
