Group Description

Allusions

"Allusion is a stylistic device in which one references an object or circumstance that has occurred or existed in an external context. In the most traditional sense, allusion is a literary term regarding the use of previous texts, though the word also has come to encompass references to or from any source, including film, art, or real events."

"She mistakenly took it to be a choice rather than what it was – a mindset forced on her by circumstance. She never realized that reality forced her to be ‘humble’, no matter what her choice or intent. That’s not how she saw it. In her mind, ‘Humility’ was a spiritual mandate entirely of her own choosing."

"The artist's studio in the backyard resembles one of those fishing shacks that dot the coast of New England, quite the opposite of the grandiose compounds and lofts that have become the self-conscious markers of artistic success. John Russell recently wrote in the New York Times that Truitt's work "never calls out for our attention." I'm not sure I agree--some of her sculpture is quite imposing--but the observation would serve aptly as a description of Truitt's home, and of the artist herself."
