A gallery of ceramic sculpture. It’s rare to feel as if an animal can possess you — inhabit your body, mind and spirit as if it were a new lover exploring all your real and artificial selves. Dress your dogs and cats with as many sweater vests, booties and hats as you want; they’ll never come close to the hybrid human qualities that seductively inhabit the work of Beth Cavener Stichter. This might be, in part, because she views her stone sculptures as portraits — of people she has met briefly in passing or good friends or family. She doubles the uncanny moment by acknowledging that these creatures are self-portraits as well, since the very act of interpreting another’s actions, facial expressions, and intentions says — and betrays — much more about our own fears and desires than the other person. We rarely acknowledge or intellectually wrestle with this flash-fiction judgment that we impose onto friends and strangers alike.
Infinity Mirror Room
Yayoi Kusama — a Japanese artist who is prominently known for having lived in a psychiatric institution for the past four decades—has been obsessed with infinity and dots for her entire artistic career, which she states to attribute directly to her hallucinations. As an attempt to share her observations, encounters, etc, she has created installations that delve into her obsessed visions of dots and infinitely mirrored space.
