Stephanie Syjuco is a trickster. These works displayed were for her first solo show, at Catherine Clark Gallery, titled Raiders. She makes bold statements with her work. She gathers images of antique pottery and prints them at their original size, and then adheres to laser cut backings. These works are removed from their traditional context, function is distorted, gender roles questioned. She uses Asian pottery, questioning her heritage. She asks the question: who is the raider, the institution or the artist? Her concept is fascinating, and I think she pulled it off quite well.
