Framed: 'Three Fragments Of A Lost Tale' Exhibition Opens Today At The Huntington Library
- by Adrienne Dorsey/Special to LAist
Five years ago, artist John Frame was jolted awake from a dream with an elaborate, still-unfolding story featuring an eclectic cast of characters. Frame’s latest exhibition Three Fragments of a Lost Tale: Sculpture and Story by John Frame opens today at The Huntington Library, showcasing three dozen intricately carved wood sculptures and found objects, as well as still photography and stop-animation. A short film about the artist will also be screened. (See video above).
Ranging from 3-½ to 32 inches tall, Frame’s carefully detailed sculptures are distinct and feature moving limbs, fingers, jaws, and eyes. The main character, Mr. R, has an older human face and rabbit-like ears, while Cat V. is a younger figure with feline characteristics. Underlying themes of discovery and loss can be found as characters cross paths and travel to strange new places.
