Disturbing Animal Sculptures Inspired By The Darkest Human Emotions

Published 4 years ago

Beth Cavener encases human emotions in forest animal forms. These sculpture are made from stoneware on various metal frames. Cavener creates these animals in forms all too human, to “embody the consequences of human fear, apathy, aggression, and misunderstanding”. She strips human psychological expression of context and shows them in uncanny detail.

“I want to pry at those uncomfortable, awkward edges between animal and human.” Cavener writes on her website. “Entangled in their own internal and external struggles, the figures express frustration for the human tendency towards cruelty and lack of understanding. Something conscious and knowing is captured in their gestures and expressions. An invitation and a rebuke.” Cavener works in Helena, Montana, and has been rapidly gaining fame since 2002.

Martynas Klimas

Writes like a mad dervish, rolls to dodge responsibility, might have bitten the Moon once.

Got wisdom to pour?
