Animal Sculptures by Beth Cavener Stichter
Beth Cavener Stichter creates beautiful thought-provoking animal sculptures out of blocks of clay.
The artist explains:
“There are primitive animal instincts lurking in our own depths, waiting for the chance to slide past a conscious moment. The sculptures I create focus on human psychology, stripped of context and rationalization, and articulated through animal and human forms. On the surface, these figures are simply feral and domestic individuals suspended in a moment of tension. Beneath the surface they embody the impacts of aggression, territorial desires, isolation, and pack mentality.”Art Posted on August 31, 2012
