Sognando ad occhi aperti
by Mary Joy Scott
The works on paper displayed in this show are part of a series called "Victorian Daydream". It is
inspired by fashion from the late 19th century. Women wore outrageous hats made of feathers, bird
wings and even taxidermied animals. The effect must have been one of strange beings taking flight from the
crown of the head, or a homunculus swallowing the delicate features of the woman
underneath. The works are colored pencil on antique cream paper (2010-2011).
Mary Joy Scott is a visual artist from San Francisco, CA. She works as a tattoo artist at Ed Hardy's Tattoo City in San Francisco.
