Rachel Kneebone exhibit today at the Brooklyn Museum

So today I went to see the Rachel Kneebone exhibit.  The sculptures were juxtaposed with the Brooklyn Museums own collection of works by Rodin.  I thought the show could have stood very well on its own merit but I digress.  The show was amazing and encouraging.  A ceramic artist who allows mistakes to happen... broken toes on feet, missing figures on some of the works, and a good example for me to follow.  The subject matter is a bit on the dark side and very disturbing, sexual contrasts between the phallic male and the floral female.  I thoroughly enjoyed the show and was inspired to create some different forms.  Enjoy the photos and please check it out at the Brooklyn Museum before its gone in August.
