I SEE ORGY: THE HEALERS


I'm a big fan of sculptor David Altmejd.  A Blog reader in London recently saw his orgiastic masterpiece "The Healers" at the Saatchi Gallery and recommended I check it out.  Unfortunately, I don't have the spare change for a quick skip across the pond, but I do have electricity and an internet connection.  Thank you donors!

  2. i think this is an older work--i saw him speak at my school and his process for these pieces is really cool...takes plaster, dyes it, then just makes casts of his hands and uses those pieces like building blocks. at the end he just smears plaster onto the forms when the plaster is just hard enough to stay, giving the works both the texture of the raised cast hands and the impression of his working hands--as if the hands that are making these bodies are also the hands that make them up...thought i'd share
