Some of these are absolutely fantastic. I'm not a huge fan of the ceramic dolls, although I totally get and appreciate what she's going for-- my aesthetics tend more towards the organic and textured, which is totally just me. I love everything from the 2009 page, for instance, and quite a bit from 2005. Some of this reminds me a bit of Kiki Smith.

Thanks for the post.

Beautiful and strange. I know a couple of people who collect similar 'normal' figurines like this, which I have always found lovely but yawny. I would love to sneak one or two of these in and see how long it takes Aunt Nell to notice. Heh.

Yeah, not really a double. Just because one of her pieces was mentioned before doesn't mean this has been posted.

Well, the site was linked a few comments in on the previous post. (I remember being annoyed that the OP didn't bother to look up the artist himself.)

There's a couch in there that sure looks like a butthole was involved. Butthole Couch Surfers?

Was a time I would have found her stuff the coolest. Now I just feel old and a bit creeped out.

When I play the bass line I feel like I wasn't invited to the coolest party of the year, right next door.

[chortle] Now to freak out the Stones fans by posting something about bloody porcelain.

Love her work, wry dark humor. Thanks for posting this. I'd seen her macabre porcelain, bloody anatomy mashups but hadn't seen her other stuff, which I really like.

Yo that arm chair is gross! Really like her work in general though.

It looks like Buffalo Bill has expanded his love of design into the furniture biz. Slaughtery Barn?
