“Qing” by yuumeiScore: 59/100ARTINFO: Yoshitomo Nara this surreal ceramic sculpture is not. The monstrous humanoid wolf has a face like a Noh mask and Chinese characters spotting its white skin. The black surfaces are painted with sumi ink, another traditionally Asian medium. We bet Kiki Smith would appreciate it. [content:shareblock]
Serenity by Pat Swyler - her inspiration, the Metropolitan Museum of Art collection of Medieval, Egyptian, Renaissance and Asian sculptures is a source of inspiration. The paintings, drawings, textiles and sculpture of the Rubin Museum have also given me much visual reference material. Incorporating historic iconography into my personal vision of clay is a lifetime obsession.
