Chris Antemann’s detailed porcelain figures exude both historic and contemporary influences within their playful, provocative riffs on a traditional form. Her ability to combine the conventional porcelain figurine made popular in the 18th century with personal, narrative twists gives her work a decidedly updated flair. Antemann takes the seemingly outdated porcelain figure and brings it into the 21st century by playfully revealing vignettes and often taboo glimpses into personal lives.
