Beth CI avener Stichter and Alessandro Gallo Collaborate on Ornate Sculpture

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on February 24, 2014

Beth Cavener Stichter’s (Hi-Fructose Vol. 26 cover artist) sculptures have an intensely-visceral quality. The ceramic animals she hand-builds demonstrate an human-like sense of understanding with their sensitive gazes and anthropomorphic eyes. But despite their thoughtful countenances, these characters are also perfectly at home in their animal skins. Cavener Stichter’s work does not shy away from the brutality of the animal world, from its untamed sexuality to its endless cycle of predator and prey.

She recently collaborated with Italian artist Alessandro Gallo (previously featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 24), who embellished her latest sculpture, Tangled Up in You, with painted tattoos reminiscent of traditional Japanese tattoo art. The 65-inch-tall sculpture (15 feet total, from the top knot of the rope to the floor) shows a lanky rabbit intertwined with a snake in mid-air. It is unclear whether the two figures are caught in a struggle to the death or a passionate embrace. Tangled Up in You is currently on view at the Milwaukee Museum of Art. Take a look at some detail shots of the elaborate piece as well as some photos of Cavener Stichter in her studio.

Man, I love that one Disney movie

That opens up with chanting in a different language

image

image

With the royal family

image

image

And the adorable children

image

image

And the tragic death(s)

image

image

And then our hero runs away

image

image

And sings a really catchy song about being free

image

image

Without realizing that the kingdom is in ruins

image

image

And is being ruled by a villain who wants to be king

image

image

A villain who is really good at causing guilt trips

image

image

image

image

And so our hero goes back

image

image

And they all live happily ever after

image

image

It’s such a great movie

Today I accidentally saw Panic at the Disco and A Day to Remember live.

Real talk: I could give a fuck less about anon hate, which I am sure I will get, but I maintain the fact that I ‘accidentally’ saw them live even though I knew it was happening because I regretted it 1) before it happened, 2) while it was in progress and 3) after I had been violated. I respect the singer of P!atD’s range and training, but I don’t like his voice or genre. They are not my kind of music. He has clearly been trained well to be able to switch from head voice to chest range to stomach growls to throat growls but it just ain’t my cup o’ tea. The frontman of ADTR constantly told people to mosh, even though the Chili Cook-Off is a notoriously non-mosh venue. Seriously, you can get escorted out by police if people pick you up to sit on shoulders. They got 20+ people escorted out/cited/arrested (the police were loading people into a Mariah just outside the gates).

I really only went because my mom had an extra ticket and wanted a DD. Plus, Seether can be a very tight band when playing sober and Shaun Morgan has a phenomenal voice, even if they are one of the most antisocial bands to see live. However, this year they actually engaged the crowd and were social, so here’s to hoping Shaun got the help he needed and is feeling better, even if Seether isn’t a band I normally go out of my way to see.

Seriously, tumblr, there are times when I like you for fandoms, but your taste in music confuses and sometimes disturbs me. As someone who favorites hardcore/post-hardcore bands who can’t afford to leave their home state, I have never felt more like a music hipster. Kill me. I bonded with a dude who was wearing a (FUCKING SIGNED ;AKSDJFADLSKF) Job For A Cowboy shirt and the five other guys wearing Deadpool shirts (seriously, there were more DP shirts [including mine] than there were any other superhero shirts there today. We are Legion. Where the FUCK is our movie?!?!), but really no one else. I had an OK cider, but I discovered that Shocktop literally tastes like drinking flour and water, thus cementing my hatred of beer. Gross.
