Jennifer Trask, October Necklace, 2002, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Renwick Acquisitions Fund, 2003.19
Jennifer Trask invites the viewer to discover unexpected beauty in October Necklace. She conjures the displays of a European Wunderkammer (cabinet of wonders) or a Victorian collection, isolating minerals, insect wings, and feathers and placing them under glass in locket-sized cases. By focusing on the formal qualities of a material, Trask transforms natural specimens into abstract studies of color or texture.
