In Darling, We Could Have Had It All, artist Vickie Pierre references fantasy, romance and beauty with the use of materials and forms synonymous with the Decorative Arts and the Arts and Crafts movement. In her process, Pierre mines and re-contextualizes symbols and mythologies as well as elements of the natural world. Informed and inspired by surrealism, craft and design, the artist creates assemblages and installations wherein she contemplates her gender, Haitian identity, history and the critical interconnectivity of global cultures.
