Naked Thing
February 4 - 27, 2011

Exploring the relationship between basic needs and excess, Naked Thing examines cultural production and sculpture in the current economic environment. Topics as diverse as Greek philosophy, Dixie cups, and flattened road kill all converge in this new body of work by Slinko. Featuring found objects, sculptures and prints, Naked Thing poses questions of radical equality between things and matter, form and content, cultural value and artistic investment.

Trained as a painter and designer Slinko spent the last years concentrating in sculpture. She has received residencies from VCU Sculpture and Extended Media, Sculpture Space, Center for Emerging Visual Artists, and Henry Street Settlement. Slinko is a graduate of VCU Sculpture and Extended Media program, and a Jacob. K. Javits Fellow.
