SINce My Last Confession
Sculpture by Barbara Scavotto-Earley

Avarice, clay, 49 x 19 x 22 Jude Schwendenwein, reviewing Barbara Scavotto-Earley’s exhibition SINce My Last Confession, for Art New England, wrote "Sculpture that moves beyond pure forms in space to address content can, if conceived and executed carefully, have a confrontational effect on viewers. SINce My Last Confession proves to be a cathartic experience for artist Barbara Scavotto-Earley, who has been working on this body of work for two and a half years. Combining elements of caricature, satire, and an obsessive accumulation of objects, these mostly figurative representations in clay and mixed media tackle an old but classic theme-the Seven Deadly Sins. The works possess a funky accessibility that can appeal to both Catholics and non-Catholics alike."

Barbara Scavott-Earley received her B.S. from Southern Connecticut State University in 1972 and pursued graduate studies at Wesleyan University and the University of California. She has shown and won awards in many professional and regional exhibitions, including the National Association of Women Artists, where she received the Medal of Honor for Sculpture in 1998.
