As I struggle to think of fitting descriptions for his work, the word “cyborganic” comes to mind. It’s not a real word. I made it up. But I’m sticking with it.

Beth Cavener Stitcher: The Four Humors

Posted in exhibits, installations, sculpture with tags , , on July 30, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

Thank you, Street Anatomy for pointing me toward Beth Cavener Stitcher’s Four Humors sculpture series. I had admired her work in the past, but was rather intrigued by these representations of Hippocratic medicine.

Sanguine – Too much blood – passionate, bold, impulsive

Choleric – Too much yellow bile – irritable, hostile, bitter

Melancholic – Too much black bile – depressed, anxious, moody

Phlegmatic – Too much phlegm – passive, introverted, rational

This must have been a powerful exhibit to see in person.

See more shots and info here.

Roq La Rue: Death and the Maiden

Posted in art, exhibits with tags , on June 11, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

Last month, I gathered a “Death and the Maiden” image collection on my hard drive, figuring I would do some sort of theme week with it here. But like things tend to do for obsessive image collectors, it kind of got lost in the shuffle.

Roq La Rue Gallery has one upped me with this nicely curated collection in their current Death and the Maiden group show. Here are some previews:

Seattle folks (if you’re out there), let me know how the show is in person if you attend!
