Below the Surface

Below the Surface, 1982, Mixed Media Sculpture,  64 x 81 x45 1/2 inches

“Evolving out of a tradition that includes such artists as Ed Kienholz, as well as African fetish objects, Watson’s sculptures have a psychic authenticity.”

 “Watson’s sculpure are the result of intuitive investigations of the psyche. The work ranges from the dream-like mood, it’s hints of repressed terror, in “Below the Surface” to the sense of ominous mystery present in “The Unforseen Factor.” At the heart of her approach is an attempt to get at those hidden areas of our subconscious, those culled sacs we avoid rather than explore.”
