In a solo exhibition at Jason Jacques Gallery, Kim Simonsson will present “Shaman Party,” featuring recent work from the artist’s “Moss People” series.
Kim Simonsson, a Finnish artist, began the “Moss People” series in 2014. The otherworldly life-size ceramic sculptures depict innocent yet beguiling child figures, covered in a green moss-like substance. The sculptures, handmade in the artist’s studio in Finland, are made from combining stoneware, paint and green nylon fiber, to give them their smooth and mossy surface. Donned in headdresses and velvet flocking, the Moss People lead viewers into a fairytale-like world.
