This title offers a fascinating look at the unique fairytale inspired sculptures of Kathy Rattenberg. The fairytale sculptures of New York-based artist Kathy Ruttenberg inhabit an allegorically charged world of unconscious drives, Ovidian transformations and feminist-inflected narratives. Described by Donald Kuspit as "perhaps the most creative, certainly unusual, ceramic art being made today," Ruttenberg's work is populated with women sprouting or metamorphosing into trees, flowers, birds, snails, antlers and crabs. Figurines of demonic-looking caterpillars, bats and rabbits are intricately rendered in clay and watercolour, a three-dimensional counterpart to the poetry and visions of William Blake. This first substantial monograph reveals the richness and craft of her intensely evocative personal/universal mythology.
