Studio Gallery Intern Review

Jacqui Crocetta's sculpture in her new series “Protect. Nurture. Release” is a life-size dress made out of twigs and wire. This unique piece is striking and bold. The dress's movement and flair is truly believable. The dress represents the elegance and power of women. The theme of Crocetta's show is based on motherhood and female persona. The duties of a mother are to protect the child, nurture the child, and release the child into the world. The womanly shape and traditional dress style reflect this idea. The use of the twigs symbolize the nesting and caring of a child.
