Artist Beth Cavener’s stoneware sculptures present creatures from the natural world in eerie, new lights. A new show at Jason Jacques Gallery in New York City collects new pieces from the artist. “The Other” presents works from the sculptor of several moods and approaches. Five “new major works” are presented in the show. Cavener was last featured on HiFructose.com here, and she was part of the Turn the Page: The First 10 Years of Hi-Fructose exhibition.
“The sculptures I create focus on human psychology, stripped of context and rationalization, and articulated through animal and human forms,” the artist says, in a statement. “On the surface, these figures are simply feral and domestic individuals suspended in a moment of tension. Beneath the surface, however, they embody the consequences of human fear, apathy, aggression, and misunderstanding.”
