I love: reading, writing, star wars, lotr, anime, supernatural, comic books, serial killers, trucks, the color black, irish accents, tim burton, tasting the rainbow, old mafia movies, and wolves. i can't stand: dolls, insects, slow drivers, and politics. i'm a college student with no life and a lot of time to kill, so watch out or you might be next.
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.
