Escaping the Frame

Artist Rose Garrard broke the age-old tradition of the frame, freeing three fellow women artists from obscurity…

I can recall the art clearly, though I’m unsure of where I saw it. Three modern frescoes, reinterpretations of paintings by women from the Baroque, Dutch Golden Age, and Rococo. My memory of the surroundings may be patchy but my recollection of the surrounds remains clear: fractured frames failing to contain the images, instead metamorphosing into cascading casts of handguns, religious icons, and birds in flight.
