I recently came across the incredible sculpture works by artist Sarah Louise Davey, she combines fantastical and eerie elements with human forms and busts in a really unique way. I thought I’d share some of my favorite pieces from her website gallery today (though there are plenty more there so go see!). A little midweek inspiration!
“Through the vessel of the figure and materiality of clay, I create sculptural objects and installations to evoke intuitive, visceral responses informed by our subjective notions of physical image and societal norms. I question my own experiences of these through the various personalities that emerge with each hybrid portrait, as they are often a mix of whimsical beauty and exaggerated macabre. Posture and pose illustrate the psychological scope of the feral female while their wide-eyed gazes portray an emotional duality that is constantly evolving within each beastly image. At the heart of these works is the eternal push and pull of the spirit. The two-headed beast, the twin within, living just beneath the skin, sharing the shell and breathing life in through the cracks. They are psychic creatures blistered by hope and beaten with twinges of nostalgia.”
There are heaps more sculptures and pieces to see in her web gallery!
