Brooke Weston makes interesting mixed media sculpture, in which animals house tiny worlds within them.
From the artist bio:
Her work is primarily made from old taxidermy and almost all recycled material. Almost all of her pieces share the concept of small worlds and dioramas situated in objects. She gathers inspiration from antique fairy tale illustrations, amusement parks and artists like Bosch and Joe Coleman.
Anna Barlow is one of my favorite ceramic artists. She creates decadent heaps of melting, oozing treats that seem to defy the laws of physics (obviously, treats really do defy physics otherwise I wouldn’t be totally up for dessert on a full stomach, which I often am. The regular stomach and “dessert stomach” are separate organs).
In her own words:
I am fascinated by the way we eat food, especially by the rituals around celebrational or indulgent treats that have developed; the way they are assembled, displayed and then eaten. I am also interested in how food tells a story of the people and place it’s in. A full stand of ice creams could suggest a hot day or treats abandoned for some mysterious reason…
I find Debra Bernier’s “Earth Sculptures” profoundly moving and uplifting.
I’ve always loved (and believed) the idea that a unique, yet universally interconnected life force exists in all things. It’s as if Debra draws this life force out in her gently emerging figures…gorgeously defined, fading seamlessly in and out of the natural structures they inhabit.
Now THIS is how you hold up a pane of glass for a coffee table! Kirk McGuire has a series of bronze sculpture tables that add a dash of marine adornment to the home.
