I got a chance to see these two shows, both at Bergamot Station. Sarah Perry, Caught From Below, sculptures that are compelling, mysterious and very finely done. This one, "Twister" appears to be made from tiny bones. At Hunsaker/Schlesinger until October 28.


And Works On Paper, at Patrick Painter, includes a Jim Shaw that I could take home, but I couldn't, already sold. It was ink on paper, large, of an egg shape hovering near the top with energetic lines swirling. It was gorgeous. Works On Paper runs through October 14th.

Yes, that Sarah Perry piece IS made of tiny bird bones. She uses a lot of bones in her work. I always wonder where she gets them. Does she massacre baby birds in her backyard?

Hmmm...maybe she goes to the tiny bird bone store? Or, has a whole lot of cats....
