Dismember me?

ejb0809

Artist Jared Buckhiester created this piece called Severed Hand of Nureyev, it’s made of porcelain and the size of an actual hand. How gorgeous!

While the dismembered hand is one of few sculptural pieces, I really dig Buckhiester’s drawings. His illustrative style exploits the eeriness of realism and it reminds me a little of the rockin’ Francis Bacon retrospective I saw this past summer at the Met.

You can find Buckhiester’s drawings on his website: www.jaredbuckhiester.com. If you like illustration they are worth a look!
