About ArtistA multi-media artist, Phyllis Kravitz’s sculptures depict human expression: a tall red man reaching for the sky, a child sitting with knees to chest, a pregnant woman, a family grouped saying good-byes. Her approach is both experimental and intuitive, and the abstracted forms explore the boundaries of human emotions. The viewer has the chance to engage with the sculptures and to form an intimacy.
Phyllis hand-builds her forms over armatures that are bent and shaped to capture expression using minimal facial features. She continually explores the idea of our bodies being vessels, each storing individual memories and experiences. The search for how to express the idea of containment and holding continues.
