Shell sculptures by Carol Bove via The Common Guild/artnet:
“Knowingly, Bove produces her art in editions, which can be as large as 35, and yet each piece is unique. . . . This is an assemblage by an artist who wants to have it all: rationality, nature and the cast-offs of human culture, a cerebral collection of junk.”
Pot heads: lumps of clay thrown on Melodie Mousset’s head as she sits on a potter’s wheel, via Susanne Vielmetter/Revising Loneliness:
“I felt like I wanted to punch the pottery off the wheel. Oh, my goodness, I was mad at the woman for being empty for letting those man hands touch her.”
Talking about something else and somehow the work of Becky Beasley came up, and I love it: Fall II (2014) and Two Slopes (2007), via Laura Bartlett.
Clam and mussel (1926), Slightly Open Clam Shell (1926), by Georgia O’Keeffe.
