This week’s Art Focus draws your attention to the raw clay sculptures of Beth Cavener Stichter. The Washington State-based artist uses animal forms as a study on human psychology and the unconscious impulses of the human mind.  She states – “On the surface, these figures are simply feral animals suspended in a moment of tension. Beneath the surface, they embody the consequences of human fear, apathy, aggression, and misunderstanding.” For those interested in seeing her work in person, she has a show opening on September 13th in New York at the Claire Oliver Gallery.
