Hilary Harnischfeger’s mongrel objects continue to strengthen, looking more alien than ever. Elaborately handmade, they sidestep traditional painting and sculpture to conjure (and sometimes use) a host of applied art forms: ceramics, mosaics, textiles, jewelry and architectural decoration. The usual notions of skill and finish are deferred; scale is confusing, as these things are too dense for their size.”
