Elisabeth Higgins O’Connor creates looming 8-foot-tall creatures wrapped in cozy, ripped-up fabrics. These monsters are large and in-charge, and weirdly endearing. But also terrifying if you imagine them coming to life in a dark alley. The artist has a new body of work with an apt titled borrowed from that macabre folk song that begins with, “Oh my darling,” and ends with, “Dreadful Sorry Clementine”.
