The End of a Love Affair: as told by the bird narrator

Nancy Oliveri

These ceramic sculptures capture dissociated thoughts and emotions from the collective unconscious. The tableaus create abstract narratives in Haiku like language associations. The work is influenced by my practice as a psychoanalytic therapist and my interest in Surrealist and Symbolist art.  Schadenfreude, from the German word that  depicts a state of satisfaction derived from others misfortune, consists of a pile of hardened magenta roses, symbols of sentiment and love. Black and white tendrils grow from a white matte sphere while a perverse and aggressively chatty bird skull on a pole presides over the scene. The pole rests on a cartoonish shape that could be a tongue or an abstract human figure.
