Miso’s Cornucopia

{ Cornucopia began life as a meditation on 16th-century Flemish still life paintings, but evolved into something more descriptively elusive. The relatively small, but lavishly illuminated oil paintings that comprise the exhibition feature botanical wonders alongside the dissected anatomical figures that populate Karen Hsiao’s fantasy Miso world.

The titular cornucopia relates to Hsiao’s vast collection of specimens, both flora and fauna, that continue the tradition of scientific classification paintings spanning Audubon to Walton Ford – but reflecting a modern context of fetishistic connoisseurship. }
