Inspired at the Art Science Museum (4 of 11)

Beyond the symbols, the sculptures were just beautiful to look at.

Woman of Time (1973) I am loving the idea that beauty can be independent of time.

It was interesting how the faces of the sculptures were masked with what seemed like a stocking of sorts. It made me wonder what we are blind to.

The female form. I wonder what the horse represents here.

As you can tell, the museum was not too crowded and there was sufficient space to move about comfortably.

It found this painting violent. The cutting of bread that yields blood. The recurring idea of hard on the outside and soft on the inside.

This piece with the yellow lobster and the nude female was particularly arresting as well. Did some googling and found more information about this lithograph done in 1967.
