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.”
Current inspiration: 15th c. Italian elbow defenses via the Met.
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.
Paintings by Jeffrey C Dressler:
“My paintings happen upon me.”
Clam and mussel (1926), Slightly Open Clam Shell (1926), by Georgia O’Keeffe.
Robert Janitz, all works 2014, oil, wax and flour, via Art Critical:
“So you’re in this kind of disenfranchised room where everybody turns their back on you.”
Untitled (Chocolate Mountains) (2006) by Terence Koh via Peres Projects, made of:
“Styrofoam base with fiberglass coating, with white chocolate, wax, paint and part of the artist’s soul in each part.”
Also, Untitled (2009) by Karsten Födinger, made of gypsum plaster and soul parts too, probably, via Raeber von Stenglin.
