Kate Clark’s Sculpture is The Stuff of Dreams

Kate Clark, is an awesome artist, and an even more awesome person! Okay, granted, she is my niece, but I’m not the slightest bit biased!

Here’s her website. But, before you go there, let me offer you a word of caution. Her work isn’t exactly to everyone’s taste! Her sculptures resemble some of the awesome showcases you may remember seeing at your local Natural History museum…except for one small detail – they have human faces! It’s eerie, really…at first. But, she’s not necessarily trying to freak you out…at least that’s not the way her mother tells it!

Kate uses real animal skins in her work, so if this kind of thing bugs you, I’m suggesting you simply not click the link to the website. But, if you do click it, I recommend checking out the section on construction. I’m also impressed with the web design itself…click the slices of images you see to view entire pieces.

I’m proud of Kate today because she’s been written up in The Village Voice, which any New Yorker knows is, like, the coolest thing that can happen to any kind of artist. Hey, everyone, did I mention that’s my niece?

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
