About

The dress sculptures of Donna McCullough are expressions in contrast. Steel, scrap metal, and found objects (often industrial) are forged into feminine silhouettes of various fashions, lacking only the flesh-and-blood women whose presence they suggest. This series, originating in 1995, was born of McCullough's struggle in navigating the corporate world - a kind of armor that woman need to do battle. Over the years the pieces have begun both to explore the female psyche more broadly and on occasion even to memorialize female influences in her own life. Beryl is constructed primarily from vintage ceiling tin. In 2012, McCullough received the “Recognition of Excellence” Award from the James Renwick Alliance. Previous exhibitions sites include the Corcoran Museum of Art, the Art Museum of the Americas, the Hickory Museum of Art, the International Museum of the Horse, the Grounds for Sculpture, and the United States Botanic Garden.
