Poetry That’s Not Poetry
The poetry of Alexis Myre’s sculpture is constructed with copper & nickel, felt & enamel. It is held together by steel forming stakes & silk thread: I love how all the pieces (or creatures?) have cranks & the positioning of their bodies — the implication of motion & emotion. They are strong but vulnerable. & They have mouths (or are they ears or limbs?) Whatever they are, they seem hungry & funny & human.
I would love to see a Pixar film with all these sculptures as animated characters.
