Beth Cavener‘s highly anticipated solo exhibition The Other at Jason Jaques Gallery opens this week (November 15 – December 5, 2017). The exhibition which features of years of work which crystallizes themes Cavener has been exploring using her stoneware sculpture of ominous animals as metaphor for human behavior.
“The sculptures I create focus on human psychology, stripped of context and rationalization, and articulated through animal and human forms. 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.
