The Grotesquely Beautiful Sculptures by Sarah Louise Davey

every prophet in his house

“Through the vessel of the figure and materiality of clay, I create sculptural objects and installations to evoke intuitive, visceral responses informed by our subjective notions of physical image and societal norms. I question my own experiences of these through the various personalities that emerge with each hybrid portrait, as they are often an exaggerated mix of whimsical beauty and exaggerated macabre.” (…)

(…) “Posture and pose illustrate the psychological scope of the feral female while their wide-eyed gazes portray an emotional duality that is constantly evolving within each beastly image. At the heart of these works is the eternal push and pull of the spirit. The two-headed beast, the twin within, living just beneath the skin, sharing the shell and breathing life in through the cracks. They are psychic creatures blistered by hope and beaten with twinges of nostalgia”.

    Amazing work! I am a student at Bradford studying surface design and textile innovation. I am researching whimsical creatures to give me some inspiration as i want to design wall paper, i love botanical and want to combine them both. I just wanted to give you some positive feed back.
