Amazing Sculptures by Kate MacDowell

Posted by Deepika singh on 10 Feb 2011 01:13 PM

Kate MacDowell uses her painstaking porcelain pieces to explore the fraught and increasingly catastrophic relationship between humanity and the rest of the natural world. Kate has collected visual imagery and ideas from travels through Renaissance Italy, Classical and Minoan Greece, Nepal and Thailand.
When asked why the sculptures are connected to humans and animals she said,” I use human skeleton or human limbs to show that our own fate as animals also reliant upon our environment is closely intertwined with these creatures, and that in losing a part of the natural world, we are losing a part of our own identity as well.”
