While Olds Goldie’s female figures have always manifested strength and determination, they now embody an even greater sense of fortitude in their carriage and demeanor. The show also features a series of ceramic heads created by shaping hollow built forms from the inside out. Much to the artist’s surprise, male faces evolved alongside the female portraits, and unexpected—yet welcome—relationships, connections, and dialogue ensued. 

 

Straka’s sculptural works conjure clusters of cells, tissue, organs, and bones, while posing intimate questions about the anatomy of the human soul as witnessed by the aging human body. Straka expands on the concept, wondering whether molted cells could be collected and used to patch and protect skin as it becomes threadbare with age or illness. Alternatively, she muses at the possibility of cells and tissues—broken, stray, and lost—being sutured back together, the artist’s needle and thread becoming a means of longevity.
