Anthony Sonnenberg: Cannons Buried in Flowers

Queerness comes in many forms—an underlying thesis of Anthony Sonnenberg’s latest array of sculptural objects that seek to challenge conventional expectations and explore the idea of “soft power.” To that end, the Arkansas artist follows a one-of-a-kind process that involves building clay understructures and covering them in silk flowers, porcelain tchotchkes, and yards of textile trimmings before coating them in liquid ceramic slip, unifying a specter of their composite parts in a fine shell that remains post-firing. Lustrous mauve and frosty blue finishes invite both darkness and depth, empowering each object to take pride in their differences and radiate feelings of unabashed queer experience.
