    Exhibition: EAF12: 2012 Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition, 2012

    Indivisible, 2012

    Corton steel, copper, and four-leaf clovers

    120” x 480” x 1.5”

    Indivisible depicts an oversized paper-crown, as commonly found at fast-food and budget chain restaurants, painstakingly executed in heavy metal. The choice of subject, scale, and material evinces the illusion of wealth and prosperity that extends to the realities of socio-economic disparities. Despite this critical stance, Calderón auspiciously lines the interior floor of the crown with four-leafed clovers, assuring us that her outlook is hopeful and symbolizing that luck is tangible for those who take the time to peer into the crown’s void.
