by BWW News Desk - February 28, 2014

For The Art Show 2014 Galerie Lelong presents Petah Coyne's The Unconsoled. This experiential installation includes a new development in Coyne's work: four unique standing screens in which Coyne employs her signature use of wax-dipped flowers and taxidermy birds - including a Sulphur-crested cockatoo, snow geese, and a Silver Pied peacock. The Unconsoled takes its title from a Kazuo Ishiguro novel and evokes much of the book's mystery, complexity, and dark beauty. Combining the artist's love of rich imagery and literature, specifically Japanese literature, Coyne's installation evokes the feeling of a lush garden where the viewer is invited in to explore coexisting forces of beauty, and the deeper, sometimes darker meanings hidden beneath the surface.
