During the creation of Reclaiming the Throne, Shonna spent hours sifting through second hand stores in person and online to find unique furniture with potential to become the art pieces she envisioned.
“Reclaiming the Throne is an art project dedicated to the process of restoring parts of the feminine essence that have been cast away, worn out, worn down, diminished, and taken to the trash. It is a project that symbolically traces the steps of the inner journey toward claiming and restoring lost parts of the self. Pieces that have been left behind because they are not valued either by society or by ourselves.
[…] It is my hope that my reclaimed ‘thrones’ will be a reminder that value can be hidden in the things we deem worthless, that nurturing and care can transform things that seem ugly at first, and that beauty is the natural resting place for the soul.”
The show will be exhibiting at The Peanut Gallery until March 31st, 2019.
