Sourcing from natural forms and materials, Petah Coyne creates large scale works filled with materials ranging from silk flowers to wax to taxidermy. As described in her solo exhibition at Mass MoCA in 2010: "All of Coyne’s works take inspiration from personal stories, film, literature and political events. Coyne takes these sources and applies a Baroque sense of decadent refinement, imbuing her work with a magical quality to evoke intensely personal associations."


The Art Talks Lecture Series is sponsored by the College of Art and Design MFA in Visual Arts program and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
