“Entangled” (2010): Kate MacDowell is an American artist who sculpts porcelain figures – drawing out the translucent qualities of the medium in skeletal cross-sections of animals, ghostly open hands waiting for deliverance, and flowers lit by incandescent lights. Her work deals with the human effects and abuses upon nature, carving out a lyrical and lost world that references mythology, fairy tales and parables from around the world (before becoming an artist, MacDowell studied Literature).
