Out of Hand-Gina Michaels' at Germantown's iMPeRFeCT Gallery

The Philadelphia art community will welcome sculpture artist Gina Michaels October 12 - November 2, 2013 to Germantown's Imperfect Gallery for an Artist's Reception Saturday, Oct. 12, 5:00-8:00 PM.

From the beginning, Gina Michaels' sculpture is Out of Hand. Her sculpture practice starts in a sandbox. She presses her hands (and feet) into casting sand, sculpting directly in the mold. She then ladles molten bronze directly into the hollows created by the body. The resulting forms are welded into “Hand Plants,” at once animal, vegetable and mineral. They can be read as lovingly cultivated hybrids, or as random and disturbing mutations. The work is full of visual puns and double entendres, with a dose of slapstick. Sometimes modeled figures perch in trees that grow out of the palm of a hand, adding a narrative, mythic dimension. The work can be as small as a few inches high, or eight feet tall. In addition to creating sculpture, Michaels makes nature prints, which will also be on view.

Michaels’ work will be at Imperfect Gallery in Germantown from October 12 – November 2. There will be an artist’s reception on Saturday October 12, 5:00 – 8:00 P.M. iMPeRFeCT Gallery is a not-for-profit alternative art space that is both international and community based. Founders Renny Molenaar and Rocio Cabello bring their experience running alternative spaces in New York, contributing a new voice to the Philadelphia art community.

Gina Michaels’ artwork has been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States, including Paula Barr Chelsea Gallery, Ceres Gallery, and the Prince Street Gallery in New York City; Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey; the Woodmere Art Museum, City Hall, Fairmount Park and Projects Gallery in Philadelphia; and the El Paso in Palm Desert, California. Additional information about the artist and her work can be found at
