Berlinde De Bruyckere – Sculptures

Happy Halloween and to our pagan friends, a prosperous new year. Here is a timely post to celebrate. The current show at Yvon Lambert New York is the first U.S. solo excursion for artist Berlinde De Bruyckere.

Berlinde De Bruyckere - Takman

De Bruyckere has a love for the old masters and she learned anatomy from the inside out. Her father was a butcher. The intent behind these sculptures is not to shock or disgust; rather, the artist hopes that you will empathize with the anguish and loneliness in the forms. The heads have been left off of the figures in hopes that the viewer will concentrate on the gesture and glean information without the aid of a screaming head.
