Sylvia Evers makes her ceramic sculptures, poetic, hushed performances, by using the human body, symbolic acts and animal forms. Use Her animals sometimes have human traits and people sometimes something animal thing. One by Evers often depicted animal is the deer, armed with horns or antlers just made a pile of clothes for the next day, or as victims themselves thoroughly reflective of the hunt. Evers can thus display a deer, as if you’ve discovered the net itself in the deserted woods. They do the same with a human figure. Again, you get the feeling of being unobserved and vulnerable in existence. It usually white colored ceramic enhances the look of innocence and beauty of the images. Recurring themes in his work Evers vulnerability and introspection. Besides these introspective silence, she reflects on the interaction between doubt and belief. "Beauty lies before me in the human inability, close to the emotions and desires, inherent existence. Therein lies the existential struggle in which no one escapes. “
Hermann Obrist, Feathery Foliage c.1900

Cai Guo-Qiang: Amazing sculptures in the best museums
"Inopportune: Stage Two,” 2004 Tigers:
Entering the tiger room, you see the violent act- tigers with arrows pierced into their bodies and there’s a very visceral response. Even though it’s completely fake, the tigers are so realistically made that the audience feels pain when they see the them. The pain is not in the tigers, which obviously can’t feel. The pain is really in the person who’s viewing this. So it’s through the artwork, because it represents pain, that one feels this pain and has this very visceral relationship or reaction to it.”- Cai Guo-Qiang

Ethereal Portraits by Lakormis: Showcase Horrific Beauty
Beauty is a treasured thing in our culture, and Turkish artist Merve Morkoç, aka Lakor mis, turns this ideal on its head. At first glance their paintings are of seemingly young, glowing-skinned models, but a longer gaze reveals that these subjects all have something seriously wrong with them. Coupled with their well-coiffed hair are fantastical disfigurations that you’d see in a horror film. Warped eyelids, caved in faces, and rashes exist on these young women.
Any sort of pleasant response you initially had is probably gone, and the works are like a train wreck that you can’t look away from. The strange details are intriguing, and it speaks to Morkoç’s expert handling of the medium that they are easily able to fool us into thinking something that’s repulsive is actually beautiful.
