Living Masses

KATHY BUTTERLY GrabberI can't put my finger on it, but there's something creepy about Kathy Butterly's sculpture on view at Tibor de Nagy gallery (and I mean that as a compliment). These ceramic pieces are like living masses that are trying to find their form. The smooth, rounded shapes seem both humanly vibrant but also dilapidated and diseased. The seven earthenware and porcelain sculptures are small, only about 7 inches by 7 inches. On a few pieces, Butterly has also included necklace-like beads and pendants, but there's nothing Crafts 101 about these works. (Images via Tibor de Nagy gallery)
