REVIEW: Library exhibit displays young artist’s work

Published: Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 10:05 AM.

“They were my concentration project for high school when I took (Advanced Placement) portfolio,” Maughon said. “I had fun with those.”

Contrast the fantasy of the grim fairy tales with the artist’s still lifes, such as the delicate “Tea Rose” rendered in charcoal, or the wonderful “Beautiful Bones,” from a decidedly different subject, rendered in charcoal and ink. As you ponder it, Maughon’s sense of humor shines through.

Dimensional work includes a piece called “Graffiti Jungle” that reflects her interest in fabric art, and “Life Mosaic,” a vibrant, exciting ceramic work that tantalizes the viewer on multiple levels.

I particularly loved the “Iron Maiden,” an assemblage of everything from delicate cloth to bits of electronics and mechanical parts.

 

My only regret is that Maughon didn’t exhibit her lively manga drawings, though a hint peeks through if you look carefully at “Graffiti Jungle.”
