The Sculptures of Carolein Smit

by JL SchnabelPosted on

The figurative sculptures of artist Carolein Smit exude an intriguing element of the macabre within their delicate husks. Often meditations on spiritual mythology and private despair, the figurative sculptures emanate a powerful sway over the viewer, much akin to how religious sculptures can incite spiritual revelation within faithful followers. The visceral additions of blood, cocoons of hair, and reliquary bones are balanced with the pale, ethereal tones of the ceramic, illuminating the interesting juxtaposition of the contradictory nature of mythology and psychological landscapes.
