Fancied, a solo exhibition by Christina Pitsch, is her first at Kingston Gallery. She will install a group of elaborately altered chandeliers, sculpted so the elegantly arcing arms multiply from floor to ceiling and support her porcelain deer hooves and flowers in place of light bulbs or candles. The surreal repositioning of ornate objects brings about kaleidoscopic new meanings.

Through the ages, images of flora and fauna have been used as embellishment and trophy. In Pitsch's most recent work, porcelain deer hooves reference a hunter's trophy and a fragmented animal form. She uses the fragments strategically, aware of the allusion to the remaining whole: how the fragment speaks to a memory, a loss, or something more elusive. Unlike the rack of a prize buck, deer feet are less valued, hoping at best to become a gun rack or lamp base.
