Beth Cavener Stichter – Animal Body Human Space

The sculptures of Beth Cavener Stichter hold attention with an eerie intrigue. She proffers animal forms actuated with human emotional concerns. The hybrid as a theme has been overdone in recent years to the point of potentially drying out the well. Cavener Stichter has entered into the discourse with a new light, one that has the potential to shine throughout a career.

The sculptures do not display an overall polish. Some areas are defined more than others like the drawings of an old master. These physical embellishments mirror her psychological concerns of things left unsaid.

Beth Cavener Stichter has an aggressive program of workshops planned over the next few years. Check her schedule to see when she’s coming to a town near you.
