Playfulness and memory coexist in Amelia Briggs’ vivid pieces that explore notions of identity and invention. Rooted in the imaginative and mysterious worlds of children’s make-believe and notions of comfort and joy, the sculptures appear to be growing and extending in an almost freeform way, wriggling around like bloated, hypercolor spirits of the imagination. Filled with scraps of found fabric that are coated in canvas and painted in brilliant hues, they are “similar to a buoy,” she explains, as “each suggests a marker of something unseen while preserving the perimeters of an invented boundary.”
