Art Exhibit: Malelingue by Artist Duane Paxson
Duane Paxson's sculpture exhibit titled Malelingue, literally "bad tongues" in Italian, or "accusers," is a symbolic representation of the Salem witch trials, that during the 17th century sent women of doubtful guilt to their deaths. Highly abstracted, these accusers are standing works struggling with LaStrega, the "witches," as though pulling them apart, similar to Medieval torture. "Accusation," the artist contends, "is very difficult to escape. No matter how you try to exonerate yourself it is almost impossible to prove your innocence." Malelingue represents Duane Paxson's work as the Southeastern College Art Conference 2015 Fellowship recipient.
