The Fabulous Stettheimer Sisters by Meta Dunkly Arnold
Medium: mixed media
Dimensions:15.5w x 20h x 6d inches
On display at: West Windsor Arts
Artist’s Statement: This piece celebrates artist Florine Stettheimer and her sisters, writer Ettie and socialite Carrie, who created an amazing dollhouse now at the Museum of the City of New York. The dramatically posing figurines and oversized flowers recall Florine's exuberant paintings of Manhattan society in the 1930s, and the backdrop references her use of cellophane in theatrical set designs.
Artist’s Bio: Meta Arnold works in assemblage and mixed media. Many of her pieces are kinetic, interactive, and narrative, designed to lead the viewer on a journey of discovery. Her recent architectural assemblages are inspired by reliquaries and shrines. Meta also teaches art to young children, with a hands-on studio approach to art history. She sees making and teaching art as a perpetual treasure hunt to find the magical hidden in the ordinary.
